Baltimore, Maryland-based Chase Street Accessories & Engraving (A&E) announces its certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) through the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
WBENC is the largest certifier of women-owned businesses in the U.S. The organization “connects women-owned businesses with purchasing decision-makers,” according to the WBENC website.
Getting certified by the WBENC is a thorough process that includes an in-depth review of the business and a site inspection. The process confirms the company up for certification is at least 51% owned, operated, and controlled by a woman or women.
“We recognize the commitment to supplier diversity that is embraced by corporations and government agencies today, and we can add diversity to your supply chain,” says Chase Street A&E in a statement. “We are so proud to have earned this certification. Of course, we would be remiss if we didn’t mention Shana and Lauren for all of their incredible work that allowed us to be named a WBE. Thank you, Shana and Lauren, for everything you do! CSAE wouldn’t be the same without you.”
