Norcross, GA, March 4, 2011 – LAN Systems, a leading Atlanta IT Consulting firm, received national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Greater Women’s Business Council certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
The WBENC certification for women-owned business is the most recognizable and sought after certification of its kind. WBENC’s national standard of certification consists of a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business, application process, detailed notarized affidavit, a site visit and final determination by the Certification Committee.
“Becoming WBENC certified is an important step for LAN Systems. Although our industry is traditionally male, we prove that women excel at technology,” said Mary Hester, Chairman and CEO. “As a female engineer, I know how important it is for women to be involved in science, math, engineering and technology initiatives. Our WBENC certification will help us promote that message. We are delighted to join the family of WBENC companies.”
By including women-owned businesses among their partners, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity. Many of the Fortune 500 companies have women’s business development programs, including 80 of the top 100.
