“Since our founding in the 80s, Motherlove has always been owned and led by women. This certification underscores our commitment to supporting women,” said Silencia Cox, CEO of Motherlove. “My mother founded this company to serve women and mothers during their most precious time in life. Together with my sisters and an incredible staff (the majority of whom are women), we continue this mission.
The WBENC certification standard put in place by WBEC-West is a meticulous process that includes a thorough company review and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm that the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by one or more women.
Benefits of certification include increased visibility as an official woman-owned business (attracting companies that require a percentage of their work to be carried out by women), increased ability to secure government contracts in industries typically underfunded and overlooked, training and member-exclusive educational programs, access to leads for deals and proposals, and more.
