Jessica Willis, CEO and founder of Pocketnest, earns the Women's Business Enterprise National Council certification
Pocketnest, via its CEO and founder Jessica Willis, is being inducted to the Great Lakes Women's Business Council (Great Lakes WBC) community.
"I take great pride in being a female business owner, largely because of what it means to my daughters and their upcoming generation," said Willis. "I am grateful to the Great Lakes WBC for their steadfast support and empowerment of women across the country."
WBENC's national standard of certification provided by the Great Lakes Women’s Business Council Certification Committee is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and a 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.
According to WBENC, 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.
Willis joins more than 1,300 certified business owners in the Great Lakes WBC community, and 15,000 other certified WBEs nationally.
The Women's Business Enterprise National Council is the nation's largest third-party certifier of businesses owned and operated by women in the United States. WBENC is a resource for the thousands of U.S. companies and government
agencies that rely on WBENC's certification as an integral part of their supplier diversity programs. Learn more at www.wbenc.org.
