QED National is excited to announce that Founder and President, Colleen Molter, was recently featured in an article on Forbes.com! The article was also published by Huffington Post.
The article exemplifies philanthropic woman-leadership in business through Colleen and the philanthropic initiatives she established as QED National’s business model, discussing the connection between these initiatives, which include pro-bono efforts to support minority- and women-owned small businesses, and their resulting contribution to QED National’s 20-year-and-counting success story.
Notably, the article focuses on QED National’s advocacy in the field of Supplier Diversity and the firm’s commitment to other Minority and Women Business Enterprises (M/WBE). QED’s goal is to allocate 50 percent of its potential spend in any one area that uses outsourced vendors on MWBE’s. In 2012, the firm surpassed this goal, achieving 58 percent!
In addition to the honorable article published on Forbes.com and with the Huffington Post, QED National was recognized in four categories through DiversityBusiness.com. The awards include: Top 500 Women Owned Businesses in the U.S., Top 100 Diversity Owned Businesses in New York, Top 50 Women Owned Businesses in New York, and Top 100 privately held Businesses in New York.
