Stance, LLC, the creators of Unmarx, received national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women’s Business Enterprise Council-Great Lakes (WBEC-Great Lakes), a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
The WBEC-Great Lakes is a certifying partner organization with the WBENC in Washington, DC. Together these organizations and corporations provide certification and procurement services for women across the nation.
WBENC’s national standard of certification implemented by the WBEC-Great Lakes is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women.
What will this certification mean to our Women-Owned Business? It will help us meet the national standard of certification for businesses owned, managed and controlled by women who want to market their products and services in America’s major markets. With this certification, Stance, LLC has been identified as a women-owned vendor for corporations who want to purchase from businesses owned and operated by women. Many corporations require that you be certified before they extend a contract to you.
By including women-owned businesses among their vendors, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier/vendor diversity programs.
We are truly honored, proud and excited for receiving this national certification. We look forward to this new chapter in our business and new opportunities with major retailers.
