Career Communications Group Names Top Organizations in Diversity

Baltimore, MD (BlackNews.com) - The editors of Women of Color magazine are pleased to announce the second Global Congress of Diversity Executives Conference (CODE) & Cody Awards. The Cody Award winners, a broad spectrum of corporate organizations, will be honored on Friday October 30, 2009, at the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas, TX.

The factors that led to this outstanding recognition aside from executive leadership include innovation, creativity, courage, and leadership in addressing diversity and inclusion. We also evaluated representation of diverse groups in the workforce, management and boards of directors, distinction and success of supplier diversity and vendor programs, support of diverse media, civic, community and professional organizations.

The Congress of Diversity Executives is a one-day conference that offers a venue to a caucus of the world's most innovative and effective diversity and inclusion experts. The conference's events will focus on the challenges that confront diversity executives in today's global marketplace and will occur on the second day of the 14th National Women of Color STEM Conference to be held October 29-31, 2009, at the Hilton Anatole Hotel.

Robert Ingram, Sr, VP and Associate Publisher notes, "Career Communications Group (CCG) through the CODY Awards is stepping out and recognizing those CEOs who make diversity and inclusion a priority in their companies and organizations. While there are many diversity and inclusion awards, few focus on the leadership role that an organization's top executive must play in driving a company's true commitment to diversity. Tyrone Taborn, CCG's founder and CEO, has been a pioneer and in the field of corporate diversity. It is only fitting that we utilize our platform to promote leaders and organizations where the proverbial diversity and inclusion buck truly stops at the top."

The CODE conference will conclude with a unique recognition dinner during which leading corporations, organizations, and executives in the field of diversity will be celebrated for their noteworthy achievements and accomplishments. Also, these corporate organizations will be recognized in the 2009 edition of the Women of Color magazine.
