Earning an ‘A’

Kelvin Williams, the Postal Service’s employee engagement executive director

Kelvin Williams, the Postal Service’s employee engagement executive director, recently received the National Diversity Award from African-American Postal League United for Success (A-PLUS).

The award recognizes postal leaders who are positive role models, support diversity and display exemplary service.

Williams is the third recipient of the award. Previous honorees were Postmaster General Megan J. Brennan and Eastern Area Vice President Joshua Colin.

A-PLUS mentors employees of all races and ethnicities seeking career advice and advancement within the Postal Service. Membership in the group is voluntary.

Williams began his involvement with A-PLUS in 2011, when he joined the organization’s Capital Metro chapter. Since then, he has worked with A-PLUS to recruit participants, review eCareer profiles and provide one-on-one coaching, among other duties.

He is also the recipient of two A-PLUS chapter awards, an A-PLUS regional award and a USPS National Diversity Award.

Williams said he is honored to receive the latest recognition, adding that he takes pride in his efforts to help A-PLUS promote diversity and foster a new generation of postal leaders.

“Giving back, by serving others, is where real joy comes from,” he said.
