Wal-Mart Honored at Multicultural Business Conference Supplier


Diversity


he eleventh annual “National Multi- cultural Business Conference” brought together people from all over the United States. Once again, the diversity business world came together under one roof, to network, to learn from one another, to exchange ideas, approaches and strate- gies, and, in the case of some, to be for- mally recognized for their hard work and commitment to multicultural markets in the United States. Participants took full advantage of the speeches, workshops and panels-as well as the social and networking aspects of the conference. Produced for business owners and the corporations, government agencies and academic institutions that utilize their services, the DiversityBusi- ness.com conference offered a solid plat- form for the kind of interactivity, exchan- ge and networking that is usually missing


T


from daily business life, due to physical distance, busy work schedules and other factors.


This year’s attendance featured a


strong mix of business owners, Fortune 500 executives, educational practioners and senior level government officials. Companies formally honored at the conference were the winners of the Div50 and the Div500 listings, which honor, respectively, the Fortune 500 companies and government agencies most dedicated to supporting diversity and the nation’s top diversity-owned businesses. Wal-Mart was recognized during a


special ceremony during the gala, hono- ring their achievement of being named as the #1 “Top 50 Organizations for Multi- cultural Business Opportunities”. “Wal-mart’s long term commitment in the market has been an asset to building


relationships with their varied customer base says Kenton Clarke, President and CEO of DiversityBusiness.com. Their relationship with diversity owned busi- nesses continue to grow and this is highly recognized by women and multicultural business owners.”


Perhaps the most valuable take-away for conference attendees were the new personal connections forged during the event. Held at the Gaylord Resort and Conference Center in Washington, D.C., participants were able to network, at- tend speeches, take part in workshops and socialize. Keynote speeches were delivered by Joan Lunden former host of “Good Morning America”, Robert John- son Chairman RlJ Enterprises, Tom Long COO Miller Coors and Nadira Hira.
