Since the beginning, WBCS has been committed to facilitating and strengthening business opportunities between women-owned businesses, corporate America and the government.

Bring business to your door with National Certification

WBCS administers Women’s Business Enterprise certification through the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC),

the most widely recognized and respected women’s certification in the United States.

WBCS assists corporations with procurement and supplier diversity initiatives by validating that an organization, or supplier, is owned, operated, and controlled by at least 51% women.
