WBENC’s national standard of certification is implemented by the Women’s Business Enterprise Counsel-West and involves 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.

WFZ is also a proud contributor and member of the American Mortgage Diversity Council (“AMDC”).
