Bank of America lauded for supporting women-owned businesses

Bank of America once again appears on a list of top companies that "level the playing field" for women-owned businesses to compete for corporate contracts, according to a news release from the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council.

It's the 11th time the bank has appeared on the list.

The Charlotte bank is the only financial company to appear on the list of 32 corporations. Walmart, AT&T, IBM, Exxon and other big names also appear.

Bank of America has worked on the issue for an umber of years. In the 1990s, under then-CEO Hugh McColl's tenure, the bank reported increasing its spending at minority and women-owned businesses from $11 million to $490 million.
