KeyBank’s diversity and inclusion practices embrace our diverse suppliers and encourage other suppliers to do the same. Working together, we can promote the benefits of diversity.

Key has provided the following overview to support the awareness and execution of this business strategy.

Report Your Second-Tier Spending

If you are a current Tier I supplier of KeyBank, you are strongly encouraged to report your spend with diverse businesses.

By using Ariba Sourcing, KeyBank has automated how we request, communicate, gather and consolidate reports from all the suppliers providing second-tier supplier diversity data. We have a central repository for managing this data and a sustainable process that will ensure long- term scalability.

Additionally, as a Tier I supplier, you will receive automated requests to submit spend data on a quarterly basis.

If you are a Tier I supplier and have more questions, please contact Camille Bragg at 216-689-5321.
