DiversityBusiness announced the Div500, the 6th annual listing of the nations' top 500 diversity-owned businesses. Ranging in revenue size from $20 million to over $2 billion, the companies listed on the Div500 represent the nations' top multicultural earners.

"Diversity-owned businesses contribute over $1.4 trillion in sales to the U.S. economy," said Kenton Clarke, CEO of Computer Consulting Associates International, the company that built DiversityBusiness. " It is no longer "just the right thing" to do business with diversity suppliers. Because of recent economic and demographic trends and changes, major corporations are realizing that having a diverse supplier base positively impacts their business revenue from this sector of buyers".

The Div500 is a classification that represents the top 500 diversity-owned (women, Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Native American and other minority groups) businesses in the U.S., in sectors such as technology, manufacturing, food service and professional services.

These are the people that have conquered the hurdles and made the sacrifices, building and strengthening their communities, providing jobs and helping to keep the fabric of the U.S. economy together."
