"We are pleased to be recertified as a woman-owned business," said Commonwealth CEO Kimberly Springsteen-Abbott. "We want to continue to expand into new markets and the WBENC certification provides us with opportunities to learn and grow."
WBENC's national standard of certification is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. It is the most rigorous and sought after certification of its kind. The process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51 percent owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women. By including women-owned business among their vendors, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier diversity programs.
Founded in 1997, WBENC is the leading women-owned registering authority in the United States. In March of this year, WBENC recognized 50 Top Fortune 1000 corporations for exhibiting exemplary leading supplier diversity programs, including Allstate, AT&T, Dell, Pitney Bowes, and Raytheon.
