As one of the few nonprofits recognized, this is the first year AARP is named among OMNIKAL’s (formerly DiversityBusiness.com) list of the top 50 companies in America for multicultural inclusion in the marketplace.
The Omni50 Award is a ranking of the top 50 U.S. corporations who are awarding the most business to the growing, culturally diverse vendor/supplier marketplace. This prestigious award is the most recognized honor of its kind in the country.
“Diversity in our supply base is a vital component to the overall success of our organization,” said AARP Supplier Diversity Director, Kimberly Marcus. “It is very humbling to be recognized by the business community for our dedication to diversity and inclusion, which is a reflection of our membership, workforce and vendor relations.
The companies and organizations recognized on this list display their commitment to inclusion based on a number of factors, including the volume, consistency and quality business opportunities granted through contracts awarded to the diverse supplier marketplace. The honorees represent the voice of more than 2 million privately held businesses in the OMNIKAL member community and is a highly valued metric of corporate excellence.
AARP received the Omni50 Award at OMINKAL’s 17 th Annual Business Summit in New York City at the Harvard Club.
