Keen Independent
Supplier Diversity Practices

Keen Independent seeks subconsultants and vendors owned by diverse individuals, including people of color, women, service-disabled veterans, persons with disabilities and members of the LGBTQIA+ community. We frequently have opportunities for subconsultants related to performing qualitative research, surveys, community engagement and program evaluation. Keen Independent uses directories and other resources to reach out to diverse companies when we have those opportunities.

In addition, Keen Independent seeks diverse vendors for office operations, including office supplies, janitorial services, building repair and landscaping services. The firm has a goal of 75 percent of our annual subconsultant and vendor spending dollars going toward diverse businesses. Keen Independent has consistently met that goal. Keen Independent also participates in informal mentoring with emerging diverse businesses.
