I am proud to lead our team and to offer assistance to women-owned businesses like ours.”
The WBENC, founded in 1997, is the nation’s leading advocate of women-owned businesses as suppliers to America’s corporations. WBENC Certification confirms that a business is 51 percent owned, controlled, operated, and managed by a woman or women. To achieve WBENC Certification, businesses complete a rigorous, formal documentation and site visit process, administered by one of WBENC’s 14 Regional Partner Organizations. Certification gives these businesses the ability to compete for business opportunities provided by WBENC Corporate Members.
