Monsanto has been named to the list of America’s Top Corporations for Women’s Business Enterprises (WBEs) by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). It is the only national award that honors corporations for world-class supplier diversity programs that reduce barriers and drive growth for women-owned business.

“This honor reflects Monsanto’s continued commitment to provide business opportunities through our supply chain for women as well as other diverse minority groups whose businesses are certified suppliers,” said Peter Stoynoff, Monsanto’s Global Procurement Lead. “By establishing strong relationships focused on inclusion and diversity, Monsanto can meet the ever-growing needs of our employees and customers.”

Monsanto is one of 59 corporations representing 17 distinct industries on this year’s list.
