As of this month, WEConnect International is proud to extend Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) Certification to women-owned businesses in Germany, Switzerland, and the Netherlands. 

WBE Certification offers a formal verification for corporations purchasing goods and services from women businesses owners that meets universal standards for certification. It ensures that said businesses are truly at least 51% owned, managed, and controlled by one or more women. Women-owned businesses in Germany, Switzerland, and the Netherlands can also continue to self-register on the WEConnect International eNetwork.

“Supplier diversity is a really new part of the diversity landscape here in Europe,” says WEConnect International’s Executive Director for Europe Maggie Berry, “It’s exciting to be working with our corporate members who are leading by example to pioneer the inclusive sourcing movement in the region.”

Hear from Elizabeth Lehnich, Managing Partner at Discover Legal Besendahl & Lehnich Übersetzer & Dolmetscher Partnerschaft located in Hamburg about the value of certification and being part of WEConnect International.
