If your business is at least 51% woman-owned and operated, you may be eligible for certification as a woman-owned business. Once certified, women-owned businesses gain access to a support network, including business opportunities, increased visibility, and development programs.
While it’s possible to be women-owned business-certified by a state or a wide variety of organizations, American Moving & Installation has been certified by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), the largest 3rd party vendor in the US to provide certification. WBENC validated that our business is at least 51% owned, operated, controlled, and managed by women. In fact, we’re proud to be the only certified 100% woman-owned commercial moving and installation union company in the state of Massachusetts.
This certification isn’t easy to attain, involves a number of hurdles, and takes a long time to achieve, which is why we’re so honored to be certified. Likewise, we’re proud to not only be certified, but also 100% woman-owned. Founder Kathleen Rowell is determined to introduce innovative approaches to commercial moving operations with resources and education she has access to thanks to American Moving’s various certifications. We are committed to a diverse workforce, vendors, charitable endeavors, business relationships, and clients. Since 2009, diversity has been a top priority for our company. We provide our clients with the best commercial moving and installation services with a hand-selected, diverse workforce and management team.
Benefits of Being Certified as a Women-Owned Business
To be certified as a women-owned business, one or more women must have unrestricted control of the business, demonstrate management of daily operations, and own a proportionate investment of expertise or capital. Business owners undergo a rigorous vetting process, including reviewing business documentation and a site visit before gaining their certification. Their thorough vetting process means that WBENC certification is considered the gold standard for women-owned business certification. Being certified by the WBENC as a women-owned business has many benefits, including:
- Access to supplier diversity
- Access to procurement executives at a local, state, and federal level
- Formal and informal opportunities to pursue business with other WBE government members and corporations
- Access to networking events
- Access to mentoring and executive education
- Access to development programs along with other business tools and resources
- Eligibility for regional and national recognition
- Marketing and promotion tools to expand visibility
- Community support from other female business owners
WBENC certification is a widely recognized and respected national certification for women-owned businesses. Becoming a WBENC-certified WBE is a prestigious achievement that comes with opportunities to raise a business’ profile and position for success. Once a business is WBENC certified, they are a part of a network of leaders dedicated to developing and growing women-owned businesses. A business with a WBENC certification has all the tools necessary to succeed.
