LEA Unlimited Certified by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council
LEA Unlimited, a business specializing in leather upholstery, recently announced national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Greater Women’s Business Council, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
“We are simply elated to receive our certification with Women’s Business Enterprise National Council,” said Lauri Cryan, President, LEA Unlimited Inc. “This is a giant leap forward in our quest to show that, when you open your mind to diversity, empowerment, and equality great things happen. Having the WBENC certification echoes what we at LEA know to be true, and gives us a place to strengthen and renew ourselves from other female business owners and even pioneers in their industry.”
WBENC’s national standard of certification implemented by the Women’s Business Enterprise 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.
