Yalo Receives Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) Certification from NMSDC

March 14, 2023 Atlanta, Georgia: Full-service marketing agency Yalo affirms its continued commitment to diversity and inclusivity by earning a Certification as a Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) from the National Minority Supplier Development Council’s Georgia Division. Yalo is 100% minority-owned, with 45% female and 22% minority employees, including African American, Asian, Latino and LGBTQ. 

Says Yalo CEO Arnold Huffman: “Diversity is one of our core tenets as an organization—we bring it into every recruiting and hiring decision. Building a diverse team will lead to better output for our clients and for our agency as a whole. I know that it takes time, effort, and commitment to accomplish this certification and I’m truly appreciative of the NMSDC.”

The Georgia Minority Supplier Development Council (GMSDC) is the state of Georgia’s leading advocacy organization for small business development and supplier diversity. Their primary focus is to certify Minority Business Enterprise firms, help them prepare to engage global supply chains, and then facilitate partnerships with corporations and governments in need of their goods and services.

Yalo plans to use this certification to help corporations with Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives to meet their supplier goals and metrics. In turn, this certification will create new opportunities for Yalo to expand delivery of its award-winning marketing and advertising capabilities to a broader and more diverse client base.
