Carrollton, Texas, July 2008 - In recognition of the economic power of multicultural businesses, DiversityBusiness.com, the nations' leading multicultural internet site, recently named Marfield Corporate Stationery as one of the
Top Women-Owned businesses in the state of Texas (Div100).
The Div100 is the 8th annual listing of the Texas' top
100 women-owned businesses. The companies listed on the Div100 represent Texas' top multicultural earners and challenge the long-held notion that a woman-owned business is small or insignificant.
Div100 members are sought after by major corporations wishing to increase spending with woman-owned companies.
The Impact of Woman Owned Business
"women businesses and consumers are a growing force in the U.S. economy, and a
force to be reckoned with, " said Keeton Clarke, CEO of Computer Consulting
Associates International, the company that built DiversityBusiness.com.
This is a whole business segment that can carry its own, that provides jobs,
products and services, and generates wealth for their communities. These are the
new leaders in American business."
Affected by recent economic and demographic trends and changes, Fortune 1000 corporations
throughout the country have recognized that buying products and services from
women owned companies positively impacts their business. Diversity-owned
businesses contribute over $1.4 trillion in sales to the U.S. economy.
The Div100 is a classification that represents the top 100 women-owned businesses in
the state of Texas in sectors such as technology, manufacturing, food service and professional services. Large organizational buyers throughout the country that do business with multicultural and women-owned businesses use the list. The
