Building and sustaining company-wide diversity and inclusion is essential to Cambium Assessment’s mission to empower educators with the research and data needed to improve student learning. For us, diversity is a strategic imperative. We need a workforce that represents the students, teachers, and communities we serve. Our vendors and suppliers are an important part of our success, and we believe that a diverse and inclusive supplier base enables us to incorporate multiple perspectives, create innovative solutions, and provide enhanced goods and services that serve the needs of all students.
We work with suppliers to deliver a wide array of products and services that support our mission, and we work hard to ensure that we partner with the businesses that can best assist us in achieving our goals. Our Supplier Diversity Program gives us a platform to engage with small and large enterprises.
