Supplier Diversity & Compliance
Penn Emblem has achieved certification as a Women’s Business enterprise by the WBENC for 2019. Penn was first certified in 2010.
WBENC’s national standard of certification is an extensive process that includes an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm that the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women, ensuring supplier diversity for our partners. The WBENC is the nation’s largest third party certifier of businesses owned and operated by women, and is a resource for the more than 700 US companies and government agencies that rely on this certification as an integral part of their supplier diversity programs.
Randi Blumenthal-Joseph, President of Penn Emblem, said: “We are very pleased to be recognized as a Women’s Business Enterprise. This certification raises our profile among the many companies looking to do business with diverse companies. It provides access for business opportunities with other WBENC members, which include many of the Fortune 500 companies as well as government agencies that have active supplier diversity programs.
