(PRWEB) December 7, 2004
It is no longer just Âthe right thingÂ to do business with diversity suppliers. Affected by recent economic and demographic trends and changes, corporations throughout the country are realizing that diversity in suppliers positively impacts their business. Diversity-owned businesses contribute over $1.4 trillion in sales to the U.S. economy.
ÂDiversity businesses are a growing force in the U.S. economy, and a force to be reckoned with,Â said Kenton Clarke, CEO of Computer Consulting Associates International, the company that built DiversityBusiness.com. ÂItÂs no longer only about the Fortune 1000, or the Fortune 1000. This is a whole business segment that can carry its own, that provides jobs and valuable products and services, and generates wealth for their communities. These are the new leaders of American business.Â
Dr. Seifert stated, ÂThis award goes to the marvelous employees of Eastern Shore Psychological Services who have all helped to make this company great. I thank each and every one of them.Â
The winning companies will be honored at a special awards ceremony at DiversityBusiness.comÂs 4th Annual Multicultural Business Conference, taking place March 17 Â 19, 2004 at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut.
ÂWe are a diverse and inclusionary company with many different activities and talents. The motto of the latest ESPS project, Soulight Publishing summarizes our ideals very well. ÂEmpowering the world, one person at a time.Â
ÂThe Div100 companies are the heroes of diversity-owned business in America,Â said Kenton Clarke. ÂWhile Fortune magazine lists the best companies for minorities to work for, we list the top businesses owned by minorities. These are the people that have conquered the hurdles and made the sacrifices, building and strengthening their communities, providing jobs and helping to keep the fabric of the U.S. economy together.Â
