Utmost Potential, LLC Certified by the Women’s Business Enterprise

National Council –


a business specializing in EMPLOYEE LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT, is

proud to announce national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by

the Ohio River Valley, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business

Enterprise National Council (WBENC). WBENC Certification is the gold standard

for women-owned business certification in the United States.

“I am very excited to have been approved as a WBENC-Certified WBE. I plan to

use my certification credentials to gain access to WBENC Corporate Members,

as well as several federal, state, and local government agencies. This community

of female entrepreneurs has a plethora of support and knowledge to share

amongst the members, and I look forward to continuing to grow my business

because of this collaboration!”

The WBENC standard of certification implemented by the WBECORV is a

meticulous process, including an in-depth review of the business and a site

inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at

least 51% owned, operated, and controlled by a woman or women, and that the

business has appropriate structure and strategic business planning and

implementation in place.

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, which in turn

empowers women as leaders and brings about a more diverse, balanced, and

sustainable economy.

WBENC Certification combined with professional development and engagement

in the WBENC network provides unsurpassed opportunities year-round, both

virtually and in-person, for women-owned businesses to grow and expand their

business and innovation through events, programming, and connections with

major corporations and other WBEs.
