SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Under the leadership of CEO Georgia Rittenberg, ComputerCare, a provider of world-class repair technology for in-warranty and out-of-warranty computers, mobile devices and servers, has been officially certified as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) through the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). The WBE initiative not only helps increase the representation and fair treatment of women in the workforce, but also shines a spotlight on business owners who are BIPOC women.
“At ComputerCare, we believe it’s important to take a stand – as a woman-led technology company – to show our customers and competitors that we believe in the power of female leadership,” said Georgia Rittenberg, CEO of ComputerCare, a role she has held for 5 years. “When we support and represent women-owned businesses, we also support and represent the minority entrepreneurs who run many of these businesses.”
ComputerCare’s WBENC certification is considered the gold standard for women-owned businesses and is accepted by more than 1,000 businesses, in addition to select states, cities, and other entities. The WBENC certification standard is a meticulous process, including a thorough company review and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm that the business is at least 51% owned, controlled, operated and managed by one or more women.
As a women’s business enterprise, ComputerCare joins the ranks of nearly 13 million women-owned businesses in the United States, representing 42% of all American businesses. A recent McKinsey study concluded that companies with the greatest gender, ethnic and cultural diversity are more likely to outperform their less diverse peers. Yet the tech industry continues to lag when it comes to creating a diverse work environment, with women making up just 25% of the tech workforce.
