FedEx Named to Black Enterprise’s 40 Best Companies for Diversity
According to the magazine, the companies singled out for distinction “demonstrated a significant commitment to diversity in four key areas: board of directors, employee base, senior management and supplier diversity.”
“To meet the needs of a diverse customer base, it’s important that we reflect that diversity within our organization,” says Shannon Brown, Senior Vice President and Chief HR/Diversity Officer of FedEx Express. “We are ever mindful that diversity in business is about recognizing and nurturing talent in all ethnicities and backgrounds. It means creating the best opportunities for talented people to succeed, and giving back to our communities so that others will have a chance to fulfill their dreams.”
Shannon Brown accepted the award on behalf of FedEx January 13th, in New York. The story appears in the December 2014-January 2015 issue of Black Enterprise Magazine. You can see the full list here…
