Guidelines to be Considered a Diverse Business

UPS recognizes women-owned and controlled businesses as diverse in all countries. Women-owned businesses should contact WEConnect International to register their diversity status and obtain a certification. In those countries were a certification is not available, the business can self-register as women-owned.
