Last Chance to Recognize your Corporation’s Commitment to Veteran-Owned Business Inclusion
The Corporations Earning this distinction will be selected during National Business Inclusion Consortium Unity Week in Philadelphia.
“The military teaches leadership, teamwork, integrity, resolve and ingenuity,” said NaVOBA President Matthew Pavelek. “These intangibles are also the most important ingredients for success in running a business – which is why corporate America is so eager to partner with veteran-owned suppliers. The corporations we honor with this program just happen to be the best.”
Since 2007, NaVOBA has been advocating for and measuring the success of Corporate America’s inclusion of veterans as part of their supplier diversity efforts. Earning this distinction demonstrates an understanding that doing business with veterans isn’t just the right thing to do; it’s simply a smart business decision. The deadline to submit is Wednesday, 9/27 at 5:00 PM EST so nominate while there's still time.
“NaVOBA’s efforts to identify the best big corporations doing business with veteran-owned businesses as suppliers has grown dramatically,” said NaVOBA Vice President Mimi Lohm. “Recognizing these excellent Supplier Diversity Programs brings well-deserved acknowledgement to the exceptional job these firms do at working with America’s vetrepreneurs.”
