USPS recognized for 15 consecutive years
WASHINGTON(April 26, 2016 ) — The United States Postal Service was named the number-one government agency for providing business opportunities to diverse business owners throughout the United States. The Postal Service will be honored amongst other organizations during DiversityBusiness.com’s “16th Annual National Summit”, taking place today.
More than 1.5 million companies with diverse business owners participated in an online election held by DiversityBusiness.com, the nation’s leading multicultural B2B online website, to determine the top organizations.
The award is based on participants’ responses to questions regarding volume, consistency and quality of business initiatives a government agency grants to companies owned by women and minorities. The Postal Service has ranked among the top federal agencies in the category for 15 consecutive years, and has been awarded the top honor for the last five years.
“The Postal Service is honored to receive this award again this year,” said Megan J. Brennan, Postmaster General and CEO. “The Supplier Diversity program continues to strengthen our competitiveness in the marketplace. I am proud of our continued commitment to maintaining a strong, competitive and diverse supplier base.”
