Social impact and diversity business classifications and certifications

Microsoft's mission is to empower every person and every organisation on the planet to achieve more. We know that partners stand beside us and the diversity of our partner network helps to bring this mission to life.


Microsoft partners now have the option to self-attest as a diverse business and upload supplier diversity and impact certifications in Partner Center. This information will be used to provide aggregated insights to develop and improve Microsoft partner offerings, personalise your partner experience, and enable new channels for customer opportunities. The information you provide may be shared with customers looking to identify diverse suppliers through AppSource or referrals.


Next steps:

  • Review options for social impact and diversity business classifications and certifications.
  • If this is relevant for your business, MPN Admin can visit Company profile in Partner Center to self-attest and upload relevant third-party certifications.
