Polaris Direct, a full-service printing and direct marketing services company, is thrilled to announce its recertification by the Center for Women & Enterprise Certification Board as a WBENC Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE). Polaris Direct has been certified since 2004, making this the 18th year of WBE certification. The WBENC certification is the most widely respected and recognized certification for women-owned businesses in the United States.
WBENC was founded in 1997 and created a global standard for the certification of women-owned businesses. The organization is an advocate for women-owned businesses and has become the largest third-party certifier for women’s businesses. This certification includes that at least 51% of a business is owned, controlled, operated and managed by women. The council is governed by its mission statement “to fuel economic growth globally by identifying, certifying and facilitating the development of women-owned businesses”.
This recertification reinforces Polaris Direct’s undying commitment to supplier diversity initiatives that bring added value and a strong culture of innovation to the company. Judith Maloy, Director and CEO of Polaris Direct, has been active in the WBENC forum. She says, “Being able to collaborate with the vast network of women-owned and minority-owned entrepreneurs has helped our business grow over the years.
In 2022, WBENC will celebrate 25 years of advocating and empowering women through leadership, certification, and education. Polaris Direct will be attending the WBENC National Conference in Atlanta, Georgia June 7-9, 2022 for the chance to connect in person with the WBE community. The conference will allow individuals to come together and experience bold and innovative practices and celebrate achievements.
