Women Supporting Women: Why WBENC was Our Choice
Updated: Sep 9, 2020
"There's a special place in heaven for women who support other women." - Unknown
I'm all for sisterhood. For unconditional love and acceptance of each other, supporting a non-compete clause, and boosting our tribe with BIG cheers in the arena and from the stands. Women are strong, fierce, and independent...but we are better together.
Organizations like the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) formalize this same philosophy in business. Their theme is "Join Forces. Succeed Together." which defines their path to providing certification, opportunities, resources, support to women owned businesses. They are the largest certifier of women-owned businesses in the U.S. and a leading advocate for women business owners and entrepreneurs. They believe diversity promotes innovation, opens doors, and creates partnerships that fuel the economy.
Brilliant Muse chose WBENC certification because they provide the most relied upon certification standard for women-owned businesses and the tools to help them succeed.
