We are exciting to have officially received our Women Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) certification!

The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), founded in 1997, is the largest third-party certifier of businesses owned, controlled, and operated by women in the United States. WBENC, a national 501(c)(3) non-profit, partners with 14 Regional Partner Organizations to provide its world class standard of certification to women-owned businesses throughout the country. Outside of the United States, certification is provided by our alliance partner, WEConnect International.

WBENC is thriving because of the strong commitment of Corporate and Government Members, Women’s Business Enterprises (WBEs), Regional Partner Organizations (RPOs), our Alliance relationships, and the leadership provided by the WBENC staff.

WBENC fosters diversity in the world of commerce.  Diversity promotes innovation, opens new channels of revenue and creates partnerships which provide opportunities that fuel the economy.

While reinforcing its important vision and mission, WBENC will broaden the reach and focus on GROWTH AND SUSTAINABILITY throughout their network by delivering our products and services through its certification, opportunities, resources, and engagement and recognition (CORE) platform.

While maintaining a superior branded reputation, WBENC is prepared to adapt to the evolving needs of their constituents.  They are poised to evaluate and identify additional ways to contribute to their members’ competitive supply chains and to evaluate future opportunities that become available to advance WBEs and breakdown barriers to WBE growth. Further supporting these efforts, WBENC President & CEO, Pamela Prince-Eason was appointed to the National Women’s Business Council (NWBC) as one of the six national business organizations chosen to participate in this council which advises the President, Congress and the U.S. Small Business Administration on economic issues of importance to women business owners.

We cannot wait to see the opportunities that will open up for us with this certification.
