What is WBENC?
The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) is a nonprofit organization committed to helping women-owned businesses succeed. If your business is at least 51 percent owned, operated and managed by a woman or women, you can become WBE certified. Certification allows access to an extensive support network, education programs, mentorship opportunities and increased visibility in corporate and government supply chains.
WBE certification requires a business to undergo a thorough vetting process that includes a site visit and business documentation. M&T has resources and support for women-owned businesses seeking certification.
