AT&T Launches…Operation Hand Salute

  • Since its inception in 1993, AT&T has been a pioneer and leader in promoting contracts with Disabled Veteran Business Enterprises (DVBEs).

  • In April 2010 the Supplier Diversity team launched a unique mentoring program called Operation Hand Salute or OHS to support DVBEs.

  • The purpose of the program is not only to develop and promote DVBEs but also to insure that 1.5% of AT&T’s purchase base are DVBEs and that we help these mentees advance their business to the next level.
