Dec. 18, 2006 – In recognition of the economic power of multicultural businesses, DiversityBusiness.com, recently named Gonzalez Saggio & Harlan LLP as one of the “Top Diversity-Owned Businesses in Wisconsin (Div50).” The law firm ranked ninth in the state.
The Div50 is the 7th annual listing of the Wisconsin’s top 50 diversity-owned businesses, based on annual revenues. The companies listed on the Div50 represent the state’s top multicultural earners and challenge the long-held notion that a diversity-owned business is small or insignificant. Div50 members are sought after by major corporations wishing to increase spending with diversity-owned companies.
The Impact of Diversity Business
Affected by recent economic and demographic trends and changes, Fortune 1000 corporations throughout the country have recognized that buying products and services from diversity-owned companies positively impacts their business.
“Diversity businesses and consumers are a growing force in the U.S. economy, and a force to be reckoned with,” said Kenton Clarke, CEO of Computer Consulting Associates International, the company that built DiversityBusiness.com. “This is a whole business segment that can carry its own, that provides jobs, products and services, and generates wealth for their communities. These are the new leaders in American business.”
The Div50 is produced annually by DiversityBusiness.com, the nation’s leading multicultural B2B Internet portal that links large organizational buyers to multicultural product and service suppliers. The winning companies will be honored at a special awards ceremony at DiversityBusiness.com’s “7th Annual Multicultural Business Conference,” taking place April 11 – 13, 2007 in Las Vegas.
