NAMWOLF Lauds Aetna, Inc. for Supplier Diversity Initiatives

 
HARTFORD, CT July 12 /DiversityBusiness.com/-– The National Association of Minority and Women Owned Law Firms (NAMWOLF) lauds Aetna, Inc. after announcing last month a $50 million commitment to support the growth of minority and women-owned businesses over the next four years.

The announcement occurred coincidentally with Black Enterprise selecting Aetna from more than 1,000 of the country’s largest publicly traded companies, and more than 50 global companies to its list of “Best Companies for Diversity.”

“Aetna has taken an important stance on the diversity issue,” said Yolanda Coly, Associate Director of NAMWOLF. “This substantial commitment to diversity continues to demonstrate the company’s dedication to being one of the nation’s best companies for diversity,” she added.

According to Raymond Arroyo, head of Diversity at Aetna, they hope to have 10 percent of all direct purchases from minority and women-owned businesses in 2006. In 2005, Aetna increased spending by 15 percent to a total of $70 million in goods and services as to expand its relationships with minority and women-owned suppliers.

Aetna is one of the nation’s leading diversified health care benefits companies while serving over 28 million members. For more information on Aetna’s culture of diversity.

The National Association of Minority & Women Owned Law Firms (www.namwolf.org) was founded in June, 2001. It is a national trade association comprising a select group of minority and women-owned law firms who exhibit excellence in the legal profession. The primary aim of the organization is to advocate for the increased utilization of minority and women-owned law firms by major corporations and public entities throughout the United States.
