Diversifying Your Success with Heather Cox

Ask Heather: Why do I need to be certified? If I'm a lesbian, I'm a lesbian. I don't need a certificate to say that.

A:  WBENC and NMSDC certifications were created in order to mitigate risk for the corporations. Buyers want to be sure that if a company says they are woman. minority, LBGT, veteran, etc. owned, operated and controlled they truly are. The same holds true for NGLCC which was modeled after the WBENC certification.  

Standards are important in everything we do and certification is no exception!
