(TAMPA BAY, FL – September 13, 2016) – The Marketing Posse is officially certified as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women’s Business Development Council of Florida, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
“We are honored to be officially recognized as a woman-owned enterprise by the Council, whose goal is to foster diversity in the world of commerce,” said Danielle Vona, Founder of The Marketing Posse.
“Diverse thinking leads to unique ideas that yield better results,” said Vona. “And that’s just the beginning of the positive impact diversity has on the workplace.”
WBENC’s national standard of certification provided by the Women’s Business Development Council of Florida Certification Committee is a scrupulous process including an in-depth review of the business and a site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women. According to WBENC, 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 Marketing Posse sees perspective as a powerful tool, especially in the workplace,” Vona said. “It’s the foundation for innovative ideas, professional growth and most importantly, it drives diversity. The Marketing Posse celebrates different ways of thinking in every challenge they take on. If your company needs to satisfy a diverse supplier requirement, you can benefit from it, too.”
The Marketing Posse joins a powerful force of more than 9.4 million woman-owned enterprises in the United States. According to WBENC president and CEO Pamela Prince-Eason, women-owned businesses now make up 38 percent of the business population in The United States.
