MMR granted the National Women’s Business Enterprise Certification
Multicultural Marketing Resources, Inc. (MMR), a publishing company, marketing & public relations agency and consultancy, announces that it has been granted National Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) Certification by the Women Presidents’ Educational Organization-NY, a WBENC Regional Partner Organization of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
WBENC’s national standard of certification is a rigorous process that included an in-depth review of the business as well as a site inspection. The certification process confirms that the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women. By including women-owned businesses among their vendors, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier/vendor diversity programs.
