MassHousing was honored with a Quasi-Public Organization of the Year Award for participation in the Commonwealth's Supplier Diversity Program. The recognition was presented by the Supplier Diversity Office during the Operational Services Division’s recent MASSBUYS event at Gillette Stadium.

"MassHousing is excited to provide a path for barriers to be removed and doors to be opened for all who seek business with us," MassHousing Director of Diversity & Inclusion Andrea Laing.

The honor speaks to MassHousing’s longstanding commitment to hire minority, women, service-disabled and LGBTQ businesses in our operations. In addition, the Agency is fully integrated with the Commonwealth’s diversity efforts and is working with OSD to share data.

MassHousing spent more than $2.2 million with Minority and Women-Owned Businesses in FY'17 for a variety of goods and services as part of the Agency’s operations.
