WBEC-West works with two closely-related client groups.

First, we serve the community of WBEs who are looking for the increased visibility and expanded opportunity that the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) certification provides. We also strive to help certified WBEs as they try to expand their customer base and markets.

Finally, we reach out to corporations and government entities that know and trust the WBENC process to point them toward reliable, professional vendors.
