WOMEN’S BUSINESS ENTERPRISE COUNCIL SOUTH

SERVING ALABAMA, LOUISIANA, MISSISSIPPI, TENNESSEE & THE FLORIDA PANHANDLE

Women’s Business Enterprise Council (WBEC) South is a regional partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), the largest certifier of women-owned businesses (WBE’s) in the U.S. and a leading advocate for women business owners and entrepreneurs. We accomplish this through focusing on our CORE platform:

CERTIFICATION

OPPORTUNITIES

RESOURCES

ENGAGEMENT

Dear WBEC South Community,

 

WE Mean Business is not just an eye catching headline, it’s how we work at WBEC South. WE represents our community of WBE’s, corporations and champions of the South’s most progressive women’s business organization. WE also means Women’s Enterprise — the fastest growing segment of business the world over. And business is booming!

 

2018 has seen a vibrant resurgence of the women’s movement. While much of it has been rooted in the pursuit of equity, we have also seen record numbers of women running for public office, shattering ceilings in male dominated fields, and (finally) leading in the boardrooms of some of the world’s top corporations. To capitalize on this momentum, WBEC South is formally unveiling our new logo and five exciting initiatives poised to elevate our community of women-owned companies to greater heights. Our new logo aligns with WBENC branding and prominently positions CORE — Certification, Opportunities, Resources and Engagement — at the center of what we do.

 

We are thrilled to share our new initiatives with you and can’t wait to hear your feedback. But announcing these initiatives is just the beginning. There is a lot of work yet to do and we can’t do it alone. One thing I know for sure is that it’s a great time to be a woman-owned business and when WE come together, big things happen because…

 

WE Mean Business!
