Women Owned Businesses are important to support to promote equity and equality.
WBENC was founded in 1997 to develop a nationwide standard for women-owned business certification. Since then, the organization has grown to become the largest third-party certifier of businesses owned, controlled, and operated by women in the United States and a leading advocate for women-owned businesses in corporate and government supply chains.
Their mission is to fuel economic growth globally by identifying, certifying, and facilitating the development of women-owned businesses. They accomplish this by focusing on their CORE platform — Certification, Opportunities, Resources, and Engagement.
