The Postal Service has been recognized as the top government agency for promoting diversity and inclusiveness in business opportunities in America for the 6th year in a row.

“We are honored that the Postal Service has again been selected as the country’s top government agency for multicultural business opportunities,” said Supply Management VP Susan Brownell.

USPS has ranked among the top 25 government agencies for 16 consecutive years.

Omnikal — one of the largest, inclusive business organizations in the country — presented the award at its 17th Annual National Business Summit in New York, May 18.

More than two million Omnikal members voted in a poll and USPS ranked number one for engaging in supplier diversity by providing opportunities to diverse enterprise owners.

“As an essential part of our procurement strategy, supplier diversity continues to strengthen the Postal Service’s competiveness in the marketplace.” Brownell said. “We remain committed to maintaining a strong, competitive, and diverse supplier base.”

The Postal Service regularly hosts workshops, facilitates one-on-one business meetings and posts materials online to guide a diverse cross section of suppliers.

Unfortunately diversity usually means promoting for the sake of diversity and not promoting people who are the most qualified for it. That’s how we end up with bad management.
