Promo Gifts LLC Receives Women's Business Enterprise National Certification
Promo Gifts LLC has received national certification as a Women's Business Enterprise (WBE) by the Women's Business Enterprise Alliance, a regional certifying partner of the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
“Historically, WBE certification was only necessary to serve governments and other public agencies,” explains Laura Dutton, owner of Promo Gifts LLC, “but in recent years, our clients and others in the private sector have made diversity, both in their own staff and among their vendors, suppliers and consultants, a significant priority. Because WBENC’s certification process is credible and comprehensive, our prospective clients no longer have the burden of conducting their own due diligence. When they hire a WBE-certified business, like Promo Gifts LLC, they are showing their staff, board members, customers and the public that they are truly committed to diversity.”
The WBENC certification for women-owned businesses is one of the most widely-recognized and respected certifications in the nation and is accepted by over 700 major corporations across the country and a number of federal and government agencies. Companies seeking WBE certification by WBENC must be demonstrably 51% owned, controlled and operated by a woman or women. The organization not only reviews a company’s lengthy application, but also conducts site visits. WBENC is the leading third-party certification organization for women-owned businesses and is a powerful advocate for WBEs as suppliers to corporate America. For more information, go to www.wbenc.org.
