Women Owned Resources

As a WBENC-Certified WBE you are eligible to utilize the Women Owned logo as you market your products. In 2014 after market research showed that an overwhelming majority of shoppers would go out of their way to purchase products from a Women Owned business, the official logo was created to bring consumer recognition to those products on store shelves.

For a detailed webinar about how and why to implement the logo on your products visit the WBENC Insights Library here.

We learn and grow together and from each other as champions of women in business when we collaborate, don’t you agree?

Did you find this issue of Certified or Certifiable full of relevant and helpful news and information to share and use about leveraging your status as a women owned business? We are all ears, please share your thoughts here.
