Covalent Resource Group, a business specializing in custom software development, agile coaching and professional services, is proud to announce national re-certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Great Lakes Women’s Business Council, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
“Our team is thrilled to achieve our WBENC recertification,” said Ann Teschendorf, CEO and founder of Covalent Resource Group. “It is an honor to be a part of such a large network of women-owned businesses. The WBENC recertification gives us the opportunity to work with companies who value diverse vendor partnerships and appreciate the customization and personal attention they receive when partnering with our team.”
WBENC’s national standard of certification implemented by the Great Lakes Women’s Business Council is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated, and controlled by a woman or women.
By including women-owned businesses among their suppliers, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier diversity programs.
