You’re already familiar with the friendly faces at Cork Tree Creative and the work we do, but did you also know we are a WBENC certified marketing firm? The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council is the largest certifier of women-owned businesses in the country. As a leading advocate for women entrepreneurs and business owners, they promote diversity in the world of commerce. Additionally, the WBENC expands opportunities and eliminates barriers for strong female business owners. 

WBENC certification is important for any business, especially ours. Why? More than 1,000 corporations accept the certification. Major brands across the country receive recognition for their WBENC certification. Second, the certification demonstrates our dedication to improving our business and serving clients. There are no “participation trophies” here.

To qualify for certification, women must own, operate, control and manage 51% of the business. A business must also complete formal documentation and undergo a site visitation process as part of the certification process. 

Our WBENC certification provides access to business opportunities and resources. These opportunities and resources help us to grow our business and better serve our clients. Along with connecting us with potential clients, the WBENC holds workshops, events and networking opportunities.
