About Us
The American Airlines Supplier Diversity Program is supported by our corporate Diversity Advocates and is managed by Sherri Macko, Manager, Diversified Supplier Program.

The Diversified Supplier Program affords qualified minority/women-owned, LGBT, diverse and small businesses the opportunity to participate as potential suppliers for products and services for American Airlines.


American Airlines sources the best quality products and services to provide to our customers. To do so, we rely on our suppliers and contractors to perform to the highest industry standards. The Diversified Supplier Program is designed to bring the added value of diversity to our purchasing program by proactively seeking out minority, women-owned, LGBT, and small businesses through direct relationships with American Airlines and indirect relationships with our prime suppliers and contractors.

At American Airlines, we:
  • Evaluate products and services on their merits, giving fair and impartial consideration to all suppliers
  • Award contracts based on the highest quality and best delivery combined with the most competitive cost to the corporation
  • Review constantly the performance of our suppliers and contractors to enhance their ability to provide products and services that exceed industry standards
  • Assure inclusion of minority, women-owned, and LGBT companies in procurement and construction opportunities across American Airlines.
The Diversified Supplier Program is a catalyst to foster mutually beneficial relationships
with minority, women-owned, LGBT, and small businesses locally and throughout the United States.
