Supplier Diversity

Diversity is more than an idea. It’s not just a strategy or an initiative. Diversity is a way of life.

As a woman-led, minority-owned business, ATR International began with a framework of valuing diversity since the doors opened in 1988. We’ve progressively matured into the diverse supplier of choice for small and large businesses alike. Professionals from all walks of life trust us to advance and enhance their careers. Because of our distinctive background and strong relationships in the MBE community, companies choose ATR, again and again, to help them meet their diversity requirements. It’s an initiative we take to heart, striving to do more than merely checking boxes. Together, we make a lasting difference in the lives of others – that’s what makes authentic diversity beautiful. 



Meet Angelique Alvarez, Head of Supplier Diversity and Inclusion


As a subject matter expert on the topic and host of Latina Leading Diversity podcast, Angelique regularly speaks at events and works with businesses to help them meet their diverse spend requirements. In fact, her leadership landed her on SIA’s 2021 DE&I Influencers List and earned ATR the NMSDC’s National Supplier of the Year Award in 2017.


“It’s encouraging to see supplier diversity programs become widespread in corporations across the country. The future of business is a diverse one. Reach out to me if you’d like to discuss how ATR can support your program or if you just want to say hello!”
