Got business? Time Warner Cable is offering North Idaho women and minority owned business suppliers, contractors and professional service providers an opportunity to learn more about how to become a future partner with the company.

The Fortune 150 company will host a 2012 supplier diversity webinar - a series of free webinar opportunities - to meet new businesses for partnerships and share how they can do business with TWC. Companies owned by women, minorities and disabled veterans are encouraged to participate.

"Working with a vibrant and diverse supplier community is good for our company business and the economy," said Deane Leavenworth, regional vice president, Government Relations for Time Warner Cable. "Our monthly webinar series supports Time Warner Cable's Supplier Diversity Initiative to increase communication of updates and opportunities that may benefit potential suppliers."

In addition to its supplier initiative, TWC strives to create diversity and inclusion in all areas in and outside the workplace - earning the company two consecutive spots on Diversity Inc.'s Top 50 Companies for Diversity list.

TWC creates an environment for success with its comprehensive approach to diversity in recruitment, hiring, multicultural marketing, education and training.

Diversity has been a growing priority for TWC as the company's approach to product development, programming, marketing, customer service and workforce development must consider significant demographic shifts in our country.

Held online the third Thursday of each month at 11:30 a.m. PST, the 2012 Supplier Diversity Webinar will serve as a resource for suppliers interested in general information about how to do business with TWC. Upcoming webinar dates include: Aug. 16; Sept. 20, Oct. 18; Nov. 15; Dec. 20. Info: www.twcablesupplierdiversity.com

    I'm with Uncle Guido. I AM a so called "minority" and I STILL take offense to this article. Racism will NEVER NEVER NEVER cease to exist with special interest around.

    So.... If I am not female, speak Spanish or fit into some other type of minority then what? What kind of discrimination is that? Lets turn this around and put it this way, Time Warner will team up and offer to male business owners that are American/ US citizens an opportunity to have partnerships with Time Warner. And then they say it will be good for our company business and our economy..............WOW!!
    That's scary.

    How can I be interested in doing business with a company that doesn't even offer service where my business is located-in the heart of Post Falls?

    I would be interested in some nice plastic business cards so if you can recommend somebody who offers such services I would appreciate your suggestion a lot. Thanks.
