Adient, a global leader in automotive seating, was named one of America’s Top Corporations for Women’s Business Enterprises by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) for the third year in a row. This is the only national award honoring corporations for world-class supplier diversity programs that reduce barriers and drive growth for women-owned businesses.
Adient received the additional honor of moving from the Bronze category to Silver. A silver distinction recognizes companies that demonstrate program evolution and growth with sustained results in support of women business enterprise inclusion.
“Adient is proud to be recognized by WBENC,” said Kelli Carney, Adient’s vice president and chief purchasing officer. “Our team is focused on providing opportunities for women-owned businesses and meeting the needs of our customers through diverse supplier inclusion.”
Adient’s supply chain and purchasing teams continue to deliver more than $1 billion of diverse businesses annually.
“We are proud to honor WBENC’s Top Corporations for WBEs, including Adient, for choosing to break down barriers, enable growth and increase opportunities for women-owned businesses,” said Pamela Prince-Eason, president and CEO of WBENC, the nation’s leader in women’s business development. “WBENC-Certified WBEs in turn fuel innovation and empower communities through economic growth and job creation.”
Adient will be honored at the WBENC Summit and Salute March 16-18 in Nashville, Tennessee.
