Washington, D.C. - OCA – Asian Pacific American Advocates, a national membership driven organization dedicated to advancing the social, political, and economic well-being of Asian Pacific Americans (APAs), is pleased to announce that Comcast/NBC Universal will receive OCA’s 2013 Outstanding Corporate Partner Award at this year’s National Asian Pacific American Corporate Achievement Awards on Friday November 8, 2013. This year’s Corporate Achievement Awards will be held at the South San Francisco Conference Center in South San Francisco, California.

"Throughout the years, Comcast/NBCUniversal has provided critical support to OCA’s national as well as local efforts to support engagement and empowerment among APAs,” says OCA National President Sharon M. Wong. "OCA is proud to recognize Comcast/NBCUniversal as one of the organizations’ most valued and dedicated partners who continues to stand as a champion of the community.”

Comcast/NBCUniversal continues to demonstrate its commitment to diversity and OCA’s mission by not only in OCA’s signature events such as the annual National Convention and National Asian Pacific American Corporate Achievement Awards, but has also provided support with local chapters across the United States and has played a vital role in assisting OCA in outreach efforts through OCA’s participation in Comcast Newsmakers. Since 2008, Comcast/NBCUniversal has been contributing to OCA’s Internship Program which provides APA college students a ten week summer internship in Washington, DC.

Comcast/NBCUniversal is also a member of OCA’s Business Advisory Council, a vital link between OCA and the business community, providing financial, professional, and strategic guidance to OCA.

"The entire Comcast and NBCUniversal family is honored to receive this distinguished award for our longstanding and meaningful partnership with OCA – Asian Pacific American Advocates,” said David L. Cohen, Executive Vice President of Comcast Corporation. "Strong community partnerships help our supply chains to expand and thrive, and they make a tremendous impact on our ability to deliver the best technology and programming to our customers. We salute OCA – Asian Pacific American Advocates for joining us in our mission to advance diversity and inclusion for Asian Pacific Americans and for all people, within every area of our business and for every community we serve.”

The National Asian Pacific American Corporate Achievement Awards is the first national program of its kind to recognize corporate achievement and service by honoring the dedication and leadership of APA corporate employees. Since its establishment in 1991 by the OCA Business Advisory Council (BAC), over 200 community-conscious corporate leaders have been inducted to this prestigious group and over a dozen corporate partners.
