DiversityInc Media LLC recently received certifications by two third-party disability and veteran business certifying organizations.
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Center for Verification and Evaluation verified DiversityInc as a Veteran-Owned Small Business, or VOSB.
As part of the certification, DiversityInc is now included on the agency’s Vendor Information Pages, giving the company eligibility to participate in the VA’s Veterans First Contracting Program.
DiversityInc has also been certified as a Disability-Owned Business Enterprise through the U.S. Business Leadership Network’s Disability Supplier Diversity Program (DSDP). This designation provides the company a link to resources and contract opportunities in business and government.
The U.S. Business Leadership Network is a nonprofit focused on driving disability inclusion in the workplace, supply chain and marketplace. And its DSDP initiative is focused on advancing economic opportunities for entrepreneurs with disabilities.
“The certification process for both organizations is very vigorous,” said Luke Visconti, CEO and founder of DiversityInc. “Companies can report their spend with confidence.”
“The good news for our customers,” he pointed out about the DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity list, “is that they can report their spend with DiversityInc on the supplier diversity area of our Top 50 survey.”
