Turner Techtronics Inc. (TTI), a managed service provider with more than three decades of experience serving global enterprise clients (http://www.turnertech.com), today announced national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the WBENC-Western Division, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). WBENC Certification is the gold standard for women-owned business certification in the United States.
“Today, women own about 40% of all US businesses*, but the trend in technology is still considerably more steep with less than 2% of American startups being led by one or more female founders** and only a little over 10% of women making it into a CEO or senior leadership role*. As a result, I see the WBENC Certification as both an honor and a responsibility,” says Ellen Turner, CEO of Turner Techtronics. “Our WBENC Certification sends a strong message to young women in general, and those in tech fields in particular, that there is no glass ceiling anymore – they can make it all the way to the top. And because the certification process is rigorous, it provides our clients with a point of pride in today’s cultural and business environment as they support a deserving woman-owned business with a deep commitment to service excellence, earn potential tax breaks, and expand their reach into a significantly more diverse set of suppliers.”
The WBENC standard of certification implemented by the WBENC-Western Division is a meticulous process, including an in-depth review of the business and a site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women, and that the business has appropriate structure and strategic business planning and implementation in place.
By including women-owned businesses among their suppliers, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier diversity programs, which in turn empowers women as leaders and brings about a more diverse, balanced and sustainable economy.
WBENC Certification combined with professional development and engagement in the WBENC network provides unsurpassed opportunities year-round, both virtually and in-person, for women-owned businesses to grow and expand their business and innovation through events, programming and connections with major corporations and other WBEs.
Founded in 1997, WBENC is the nation’s leader in women’s business development and the leading third-party certifier of businesses owned and operated by women, with more than 18,000 certified Women’s Business Enterprises, 14 national Regional Partner Organizations, and more than 500 Corporate Members, most of which are Fortune 500. Thousands of corporations representing America’s most prestigious brands, as well as many states, cities, and other entities, look for and accept WBENC Certification. Through the Women Owned initiative, WBENC also is a leader in supporting consumer-oriented female entrepreneurs and those who do business with them by raising awareness for why, where and how to buy Women Owned.
