NASA Receives Diversity Innovator Award
 
 
NASA's Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU) is the winner of The Diversity Innovator Award 2004. OSDBU received the award Tuesday at the National Womens Business Center Annual entrepreneurial Visionary Awards Gala.

The National Women's Business Center and the Ivy Planning Group LLC, both of Washington, sponsor the Diversity Innovator Award. The competitive award recognizes excellence in diversity. It honors companies and organizations that have implemented innovative diversity initiatives.

"I'm proud that we've been given this award," said Ralph Thomas, NASA's Assistant Administrator for the OSDBU. "We have made every effort to reach out to small, minority and women owned businesses and others in some of the most critical NASA missions. Although OSDBU received this award, we had a lot of help from the small business specialists our 10 field centers and from the whole NASA family. NASA supports small business, and the work we do couldn't be done without the atmosphere that NASA gives," he said.
