The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) provides the most widely recognized and respected certification in the United States for Women’s Business Enterprises (WBE).
Through the Women’s Business Enterprise Council South (WBEC South), a regional partner organization of WBENC, your business can apply for this certification, which is accepted by major corporations, and many local, state, and federal government agencies.
WBENC certification is an important marketing tool for expanding your company’s visibility and access to decision makers in supplier diversity and procurement offices. Many corporations require that your woman-owned business become WBENC certified before providing access to their supplier diversity programs.
