Omega World Travel Named to 2008 Top Business List
by DiversityBusiness.Com

FAIRFAX, VA – May 4, 2009- Omega World Travel (Omega) was recently honored as one of the top diversity businesses by DiversityBusiness.com at the 9th Annual Multicultural Business Conference held April 29 – May 1, 2009 at Disney's Contemporary Resort in Orlando, Florida.


Omega has distinguished itself consistently as a woman-owned business and a leader in the travel industry. This is the eighth consecutive year that Omega has been named to the Top Business List. Omega's president and CEO Gloria Bohan champions a corporate philosophy centered on the value of a diverse workforce working along side other diverse businesses that are committed to bringing a fresh vision and new opportunities to their business community.

"Every company receiving this recognition represents the true entrepreneurial spirit – one that is rooted in enthusiasm, creativeness and commitment. If you look at the list of winners you'll gain insight into the riches that spring from diverse cultures, diverse employees, diverse customers and diverse communities" said Bohan. "Together we are able to fuel success and keep moving forward."

The annual listing of the top businesses by DiversityBusiness.com represents the Nation's top multicultural earners and challenges the long-held notion that a privately held business is small or insignificant. Winners are sought after by major corporations wishing to increase spending with small and diverse businesses.

"Entrepreneurs are a growing force in the U.S. economy, and a force to be reckoned with," said Kenton 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."
