USF Assistant VP of Supplier Diversity honored by Onyx Magazine

Award recognizes local trailblazers during Women's History Month

A University of South Florida administrator creating more opportunities for small and minority owned businesses to work with the USF System, is being honored as one of Onyx Magazine’s 2018 Women on the Move.

Terrie Daniel, assistant vice president of the Office of Supplier Diversity, is leading a program designed to ensure smaller businesses and those owned by minorities, women and veterans have ample opportunity to compete for purchasing opportunities at USF.

“I am honored to receive this award and to be recognized as a leader who is leaving a legacy and creating sustainable solutions that directly impact the community in which I live and serve,” Daniel said. “What I do is not only “hard” work but also “heart” work and I am excited about how we are progressing and implementing strategies that will now be enveloped in the fabric of the USF System for decades to come.”

Onyx Magazine’s third annual Women on the Move (WOTM) awards are presented to influential Florida women of color who are making a significant impact across a variety of professional disciplines. In keeping with the National Women’s History Month’s theme, “Nevertheless, She Persisted,” this year’s WOTM event will highlight women who have shattered the glass ceiling in their professions and persevered against all odds, according to an Onyx Magazine press release.

Daniel joined USF in April 2017 to help enhance the Supplier Diversity Program. Working closely with USF System purchasing agents, departmental buyers and the Facilities Management Division, the program implements and monitors small, minority, veteran and women-owned business participation at USF. Daniel also actively represents the USF System in the business community through involvement in associations and organizations that promote the economic development of diverse businesses.

Daniel, along with this year’s other WOTM honorees, will be celebrated at an awards luncheon on Thursday, March 15. For more information on the ceremony and ticket details, visit their website.
