Through our membership and participation in the diversity supplier organizations, as well as our involvement in trade shows and support and sponsorship of other business events, we actively look to identify new sources of qualified diversity suppliers. In addition, we are continuously assessing our performance against industry best practices, and we often work with our major suppliers to identify joint venture opportunities, as well as mentoring diversity suppliers with whom we hope to work in the future. Supplier diversity not only makes good business sense, it's our policy, our commitment and our corporate responsibility.
