Turner’s commitment to creating opportunities for minority and women-owned small businesses earns the company recognition for the seventh consecutive year

“I’d like to thank the business owners who participated in the survey. We are honored by their confidence in us, and we are proud to be considered an ally and an advocate for the many growing small businesses in our industry.

Turner Construction Company is pleased to announce that for the seventh year in a row the company has earned recognition as one of the top organizations for multicultural business opportunities.

Turner was selected through a survey of more than 1.5 million small businesses. The chosen companies distinguish themselves by establishing and maintaining the most mutually beneficial relationships with diversity suppliers and subcontractors.

“Fairness, inclusion, and respect for people have always been at the heart of Turner’s work, and our effort to create and provide opportunities for minority and women owned firms is one of our most important expressions of those values,” said Karen Sweeney, Turner’s senior vice president of community and citizenship. She continued, “I’d like to thank the business owners who participated in the survey. We are honored by their confidence in us, and we are proud to be considered an ally and an advocate for the many growing small businesses in our industry.”

The Div50 companies will be honored as part of DiversityBusiness.com’s 16th Annual National Summit on April 26.
