USHLI is pleased to announce that FedEx will receive the CORPORATE VISIONARY AWARD at our 38th National Conference, which will be held February 20-23, 2020. The award will be presented at the Sheraton Grand Chicago, 301 E. North Water Street, at 7:00pm, Saturday, February 22 during our Hispanic Legends Award Dinner.
This prestigious award is being presented to FedEx because of its extraordinary commitment to Diversity and Inclusion. At FedEx, over 50% of its U.S. workforce and 35.5% of its management team are minorities. Almost 25% of its diverse supplier spend went to minority-owned and women-owned businesses in 2018. It’s generally accepted that Diversity and Inclusion is smart business practice. At FedEx, it’s simply “the right thing to do.”
Dr. Juan Andrade, USHLI President, said “We are exceedingly pleased to have this opportunity to showcase FedEx’s strong commitment to Diversity and Inclusion. Most corporations only talk the talk, if they say anything at all, about the importance of Diversity and Inclusion. FedEx does much more than talk the talk, but walks the walk as well. We are proud to honor FedEx with our Corporate Visionary Award and join the legion of organizations paying tribute to this corporation that is setting the standard for commitment to Diversity and Inclusion – for the right reason.”
At FedEx, we recognize that our impact is greater than the services we provide. We are committed to being a great place to work, a thoughtful steward of the environment and a caring citizen in the communities where we live and work. We are passionate about sustainably connecting people and places and improving the quality of life around the world.
