NASA Glenn Touted for commitment to Advancing Minorities
During the Urban League of Greater Cleveland's annual Equal Opportunity Day recognition on November 9, NASA's Glenn Research Center, Cleveland, joined the prestigious ranks of companies honored for their commitment to racial equality. Glenn was presented the League's Corporate Excellence Award during a luncheon at the Marriott Key Center, downtown Cleveland.
Glenn was recognized for several reasons: number of minorities in senior management; number of women and minorities in entire workforce; innovative diversity programs; and the Center Director's commitment to equal opportunity as demonstrated by the Center's community involvement.
"NASA Glenn has a legacy of racial diversity and equality that it shares with the community not only by being an active participant, but by setting a strong example," said Center Director Donald J. Campbell. "We truly appreciate this recognition because it demonstrates that others believe we are on track with our vision."
The Center utilizes its Office of Diversity and Office of Equal Employment to foster and maintain a model workplace. In concert with management, they seek to create a working environment that values employees for their individual and group contributions to the Center's mission. Glenn also promotes its culturally diverse staff and management as an added benefit to the Center's customers and stakeholders.
The Urban League of Greater Cleveland's mission is to enable African Americans and other minority groups to develop and exercise their full potential on par with all other Americans through research, advocacy and the provision of services. Its annual Equal Opportunity Day programs aim to reaffirm the importance of having a human rights focus.
