To participate in the JCPenney Supplier Diversity Program, vendors must register in the Supplier Diversity Portal. Program participants are expected to maintain certifications from a national, regional, or state credentialing agency. JCPenney recognizes certifications from the following councils:

  • National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC)
  • Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC)
  • US Business Leadership (USBLN)
  • Disability Supplier Diversity Program (DSDP)
  • National Veteran-Owned Business Association (NaVOBA)
  • US Pan Asain American Chamber of Commerce (USPAAC)
  • National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC)
  • Federal, Regional, and State certifying agencies

Though JCPenney strives to support and develop businesses owned by diverse suppliers, registration in the Supplier Diversity Portal does not guarantee a contract. If we have an opportunity related to your submission, we will contact your organization for further information.
