Reflections from the
D/FW MSDC Media Lounge

Supplier diversity is important to Raytheon because we are a global company and we
rmly believe we have to bring our whole selves to the table to be successful to market
around the globe. That means to bring in all the learning, all the experience and all the
different perspectives that can be brought to the table. We look for diversity inclusion
suppliers that can augment and supplement what Raytheon does.

John Lozano In particular, we need people who are building products, manufacturing products that can
be introduced into our product offerings that we provide to our customers. It includes
Chairman products/services that might be able to be introduced into future product offerings. I think
there’s value in using diverse suppliers. I think there is strength in it. And, more

Worth area. We’re able to connect and teach them about what we do at the university. It’s
a great opportunity to connect with the minority businesses in the community. It’s
important to the state agencies because the HUB list grows every year and there are a lot
of new vendors added each year. We can connect with these vendors and learn about
their services to match with opportunities we have or can create.


Certication is a two-way street. I have had the pleasure of looking at certication both as
a Buying Entity and a MBE. As a Buying Entity, it benets the company because it is the
“go to” source for locating minority-owned businesses. The Council provides a very
valuable service. It’s efcient and credible in terms of sourcing suppliers.

As a MBE, I am included in the database. You have to make sure you keep up with your
prole so it has accurate information and codes. But, it offers an opportunity through the
Council for Buying Entities to locate you.

Leadership Dallas/Fort Minority Supplier Development Council is the voice for all
Team MBEs associated with the Council. Our purpose is to provide input to the
Board of Directors and Council Staff about suggested programs, concerns
Betty Manetta and needs of MBEs in order to grow and sustain their businesses. In
addition, the MBEIC works to encourage MBE participation in Council

pinpointed for minority business inclusion.
Silvana Rosero In 2016, we worked with the Inclusive Supply Chain Working Group to identify and present
an introduction to Smart/Resilient Cities and Internet of Things (IoT). In addition, we attended

others engaged to use the services of other MBEs.
Terri Quinton The MBEIC continued to work with our various Industry Groups to present programs

for Buying to create meaningful connections for MBE business engagement.
Entity Certification continues to be an important part of the Council's offerings to minority business
members and owners. We know D/FW MSDC has one of the most trusted and efficient processes in the

Growing the capacity of certified minority business suppliers is a core initiative of D/FW MSDC. In 2009, the Council developed a
fund to assist deserving MBEs in the growth and development of their business. At the September Quarterly Buyers’ Appreciation
Luncheon each year, awards of up to $5,000 are granted to MBEs. To date, the fund has awarded over $100,850 in cash and over
$25,000 “in-kind” training to D/FW MSDC MBEs to grow their businesses. These awards have been used to obtain licenses in an
industry, OSHA training, purchase key pieces of equipment and more. Contributions can be made to the BTTBUTM Building
Capacity Fund at any time throughout the year. Checks should be made payable to D/FW MSDC in the name of the BTTBUTM
Building Capacity Fund.

Established in 1973, the Dallas/Fort Worth Minority Supplier Development Council (D/FW MSDC) is a nonprofit business organization that
certifies, connects, develops and advocates for minority-owned businesses and is a sourcing resource for corporate and public sector buying
entities. The mission of the D/FW MSDC is to encourage and facilitate procurement and business opportunities between Buying Entity
