In concert with the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), FedEx executives proclaimed their pride that FedEx is included on the 16th annual list of America’s Top Corporations for Women’s Business Enterprises (WBEs).
The award is the only national award honoring corporations for world-class supplier diversity programs that reduce barriers and drive growth for women-owned businesses. It is also the only national award honoring corporations who are choosing to integrate policies and programs to enable growth and reduce barriers for women-owned businesses.
FedEx is committed to increasing opportunity in domestic and international markets, fueling innovation and empowering communities through economic growth and job creation.
“Diversity is a core value at FedEx, and we appreciate the unique experiences and perspectives of our 340,000 plus team members worldwide,” said Sue Spence, vice president of Sourcing and Procurement for FedEx.  “Diverse suppliers are also essential, including women’s business enterprises.  They are a key component of our overall success.”
FedEx will be honored in front of an audience of more than 1,500 attendees at the WBENC Summit & Salute to Women’s Business Enterprises taking place March 22-24, 2016 in Phoenix.
