Tracie Ninh is the Vice President, Supplier Diversity Specialist at BNY Mellon based in New York City. Supplier diversity is a critical component of BNY Mellon's Corporate Social Responsibility, Diversity and Inclusion, and Community Reinvestment approach. Our mission is to transform and integrate supplier diversity into our sourcing process by providing outreach, guidance, and procurement opportunities to businesses owned and operated by women and minorities, LGBTQs, veterans and service-disabled veterans, people with disabilities, and small businesses.
As our world, our business, and client mix changes, it is increasingly important that our colleagues have access to the best and brightest diverse business community to support our growth, and that we support the local communities in which we operate by creating relationships with these suppliers and key advocacy organizations.
Ms. Ninh’s background is in responsible and sustainable supply chains, working with companies to ensure their supply chains meet social (human rights) and environmental requirements.
