MGM Resorts has been named one of America's Top Corporations for Women's Business Enterprises by the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), a national leader in women's business development and certification.
MGM Resorts is the only Nevada-based company to earn a spot on WBENC's latest list, which honors corporations for proactively integrating Women's Business Enterprises into their supply chains.
"On behalf of our 62,000 employees, we count it a true honor to be recognized by WBENC as a national leader in opportunities for women enterprises in our supply chain," said Executive Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer Phyllis James. "Not only does our Supplier Diversity Program widen the pool of competitive providers of products and services available to us, but it also enables us to forge relationships with qualified businesses that are reflective of our diverse community to our mutual business benefit."
Since introducing its Supplier Diversity Program in 2001, the Company has contracted with more than 200 women-owned suppliers, resulting in a cumulative total of more than $512 million in company expenditures.
