Supplier diversity database application

We are in the process of redesigning our supplier diversity database. We are working to provide a better tool that meets the needs of our diverse suppliers as well as our internal Mayo Clinic colleagues.

If you have not registered as a diverse supplier with Mayo Clinic, send us an email at with the products and services you have to offer Mayo Clinic. We will use these emails as your registrations at this point in time.

Once we have our new database up and running, we will reach out to you with instructions on our new registration process. Thank you for your patience during this transition period.
