The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council has included several financial services companies among 66 top corporations that have shown a sustained commitment to including women-business enterprises in their supply chains.
WBENC, the largest third-party certifier of U.S. businesses owned, controlled and operated by women, announced the financial services firms among the 66 corporations that would receive its 2023 America’s Top Corporations for WBEs award.
WBENC chose 12 firms in the professional services, financial services, insurance, real estate & facilities management industries. The organization chose those firms because they have leading programs addressing barriers faced by women-owned businesses, WBENC said in a press release. In addition, they invest in external programs that support women-owned businesses, particularly in the education of financial health and access to capital.
The firms include:
• Allstate Insurance Company
• American Family Insurance
• Bank of America
• Capital One
• Fifth Third Bank
• Robert Half International
• Wells Fargo
The organization will honor all 66 corporations during the 2023 WBENC National Conference, March 20-23, 2023, in Nashville, Tenn.
