DEARBORN, Mich., December 06, 2006/ DiversityBusiness.com -- Ford honored three of its minority and women-owned suppliers for their commitment in supporting the economic empowerment of diverse communities at its 11th annual Diversity Development Awards at Ford World Headquarters.

The Carlson Marketing Group was recognized for outstanding community service. Dilip Mullick, president, EWIE, (East West Indian Engineering), won for exemplary entrepreneurship, and Kelly Services was honored for extraordinary efforts in corporate citizenship.

"These three companies have gone above and beyond in the areas of community service, entrepreneurship and corporate citizenship," said Tony Brown, senior vice president - Global Purchasing, Ford Motor Company. "They take the responsibility to build and grow minority and women-owned suppliers into best-in-class companies and support Ford's view of success by delivering quality products and services in ways that enhance and benefit the society we live in."

The community service award is given to the diverse supplier that is a catalyst for change in the diverse community. Carlson Marketing Group supports the Habitat for Humanity and provides financial support and employee volunteer time to countless community organizations.

The entrepreneurial award given to Mullick goes to a diverse supplier who has overcome difficulties and accepted personal risk to create high value- added business and become a valuable Ford supplier.
