Avis Named to Supplier Diversity "Best of the Best" List

Avis Budget Group’s supplier diversity program has been recognized among the nation's top programs for women business owners.

Presented by Professional Woman's Magazine (PWM), the annual "Best of the Best" evaluation seeks to encourage active outreach and diversity policies among corporations and government agencies and bring the latest information and guidance to PWM readers.

"Today women make up the majority of professional workers in the United States,” said Mona Lisa Faris, president and publisher of Professional Woman's Magazine. “Organizations that are the 'Best of the Best' harness the power that women bring to the workplace. They know that diversity breeds innovation, flexibility and inventiveness."

The 2013 "Best of the Best" list was compiled from market research, independent research, diversity conference participation and surveys conducted by agents and/or affiliates of DiversityComm (publisher of Professional Woman's Magazine.)

"Identifying and integrating women-owned businesses into our vendor base is a cornerstone of our supplier diversity program," said Ronald L. Nelson, chairman and chief executive officer of Avis Budget Group. "We are proud to be recognized for our continuous effort, and are honored to be named one of the nation's best supplier diversity programs for women."

    Avis Budget group is definitely the 'Best of the Best' they put every effort possible towards including WBE,DBE,& ACDBE suppliers in the list of "Approved Vendors" that they utilize for the locations needs. Avis Budget does what they say when it comes to Diversity. ABG backs up what they say with directing meaningful business contracts in the Diversity direction. Thank you again Avis Budget Group.
