Six Feet Up Receives Recertification by WBENC as Woman-Owned Business
September 23, 2015
Six Feet Up, a software company that helps IT teams develop, deploy, host and support enterprise-grade web projects, has been recertified as a Woman-Business Enterprise (WBE) by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). Six Feet Up, who is also certified as WOSB through the U.S. Small Business Administration, initially received this nationally-recognized certification in 2009.
“We are proud to uphold our certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise,” said Gabrielle Hendryx-Parker, CEO and Co-Founder. “Our recertification is an indication of our commitment to diversity in the high tech industry as we proudly employ a large ratio of women in our team of experts dedicated to the development of custom solutions to manage data, sites and systems.”
WBENC certification is a meticulous process that includes an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. In order to receive WBENC certification, a business must be approved following an in-depth review of company records and a site inspection. The process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women. 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.
The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) is dedicated to advancing the success of certified women’s business enterprises and corporate members in partnership with its affiliated women’s business organizations. WBENC’s goal is to foster diversity in the world of commerce. Its programs and policies are designed to expand opportunities and eliminate barriers in the marketplace for women business owners. WBENC works with representatives of corporations to encourage the utilization and expansion of supplier diversity programs. More info is at: www.wbenc.org
