Southport, CT, February 08, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- DiversityBusiness, the nation’s’ leading multicultural business website, today announced the honorees for its “Champions of Diversity Award” for 2012. This distinguished group of individuals are recognized for their outstanding achievements in various diversity initiatives within their companies and communities.
The “Champions of Diversity Award” represent individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to solutions in diversity issues on a regional and national level. The honorees have made a significant impact on diversity issues in employment, procurement, housing and education. These “soft” sell champions have not waved a diversity flag but have quietly made a difference in the lives of people by positively impacting their lives, and improving the economic conditions for their families and communities.
Some of the remarkable leaders joining this year’s list include Terry Lundgren, President & CEO of Macy’s, Floyd Pitts, S.V.P. & CDO of American Red Cross, Marion Gross, Vice President at McDonald's USA and Indra Nooyi, President & CEO of Pepsico Inc.
“I am extremely excited about this year’s honoree list,” said Kenton Clarke, CEO of DiversityBusiness. “This recognition brings attention to real results provided by many different people representing all sectors of diversity and who can quantify success made by their efforts.
The “Champions of Diversity” will be honored at a special awards ceremony at DiversityBusiness 12th Annual Multicultural Business Conference, taking place April 25 – April 27, 2012 at The Foxwoods Resort and Casino in Mashantucket, CT.
“America should be proud of the results produced by the 'Champions' and others, says Mr. Clarke. “They are most deserving of this recognition and they continue to make our country the greatest place on earth to live.”
