Equal opportunity for all people is essential to human dignity and growth and to the successful conduct of business. BDA is an Equal Opportunity Employer.


BDA is recognized as an industry leader in the recruitment, certification, mentoring and utilization of Minority/Women-Owned Business Enterprise (MWBE) suppliers. Our goal is to identify all potential MWBE suppliers and encourage them to do business with BDA.

While the certification process is quite complex and varies from region to region, we have found that with our assistance and mentoring, MWBE suppliers are more likely to become certified. This helps them to grow their businesses and further support our MWBE initiatives.

BDA is proud of its proven track record of turning some of these suppliers into national MWBE leaders within the promotional products industry. Please contact us for more information.

Merchandise Partners is a full-service Tier 1 solution, allowing corporate clients to meet their diversity goals.

Merchandise Partners is just one way BDA shows our commitment to the minority- and women-owned community. Annually, our clients and the MWBE community have recognized BDA for helping to advance this business sector.

Additionally, BDA has worked to further our MWBE supplier base by actively working with our vendors in establishing their certification.
