Is Certification Right for You? - Part 1

Thursday, March 8 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm • Organized By Women's Business Center
8320 Ward Parkway, Kansas City, MO 64114


Part 1 – Is Certification Right for You?

Have you been looking for that special something to help you “get in the door” of large corporations? If you are a woman-owned and operated business, that something could be the Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) Certification. Although not a guarantee of business, the WBE Certification has been proven to provide a competitive edge in obtaining corporate contracts. We invite you to come and learn more about WBE certification tools.

We are hosting this event collectively and coupling with our Leveraging Certification (Part 2) offering. We invite you to stay for both and meet more world-class women business owners as they gain more tools to leverage their certification and grow their bottom line.

This workshop is co-hosted by the Women's Business Centerand the Women's Business Development Center (a regional partner organization for Women's Business Enterprise National Council).

We welcome our community and corporate partners, as we all learn more and refine our tools. #togetherKC
