Grow the Economy with Supplier Diversity

December 19th, 2016 · No Comments

Diverse Women Business Enterprises directly affect the economy.

Supplier Diversity is a growing business strategy in which many corporations, government and non-profits seek to work with suppliers and service providers of all communities. The most common certified diverse businesses are Small Business Enterprise (SBE), Minority-owned Business Enterprise (MBE) and Women Business Enterprise (WBE). To obtain a diverse business status, a business must undergo a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection to receive certification from a third-party.

For month’s we’ve all be listening to the general election candidate’s talk about our economy and their strategies to improve the slow job market.  Here is something that is working in our economy, women-owned business enterprises (WBE). The State of Women-Owned Businesses, 2016 published report states the following statistics:

  • there are now 11.3 million women-owned businesses in the United States
  • women-owned businesses generate over $1.6 trillion in revenues
  • over the past nine years, the number of women-owned firms has grown at a rate 5X’s faster than the national average
  • employment in women-owned businesses has increased by 18% since the 2007 recession, while among all businesses employment has declined 1% since 2007
