Supplier Diversity Program

At First Republic Bank, we are committed to doing the right thing while providing extraordinary service. This means an ongoing effort to invest in our communities while engaging the best suppliers through various initiatives like our Supplier Diversity Program.

The Supplier Diversity Program helps to foster the growth of diverse companies locally and across the nation. Our goal is to establish equal opportunities for deserving suppliers through external outreach and education across our internal business units. By integrating supplier diversity into all aspects of our business, we can contribute to the long-term economic sustainability of the communities that we are privileged to serve.


A company may qualify as a diverse supplier when it operates as a business entity which is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by U.S. Citizens who are members of one of the following groups:

  • African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans, Asian Pacific Americans, Indian Americans, and Native Americans
  • Disabled Individuals
  • Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender
  • Small Business Enterprises
  • Veterans
  • Women
Preferably your company should be certified by an official certification agency such as the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC), National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC), National Women Business Owners Corporation (NWBOC), Small Business Administration (SBA), United States Business Leadership Network (USBLN), United States Department of Veteran Affairs, Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), and other applicable agencies. However, we will consider self-certified organizations as well. When submitting, please submit your criteria for your determination of your certification, though disclosure of classification is always optional.
