We at CELA are pleased to announce the achievement of the Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) certification, granted by WEConnect International. This certification serves as an authenticity seal, attesting to our commitment to gender diversity, demonstrating that we are predominantly controlled and operated by women, with over 51% female ownership. In the current business landscape where support for women-led companies is a priority, this certification ensures that these commitments are effectively upheld. Besides strengthening our identity as a women-led company, CELA aligns itself with the ESG goals of corporations dedicated to supplier diversity programs. Being part of the WEConnect network also connects us with other women entrepreneurs, enriching our connections and generating collaboration opportunities. This certification provides assurance to organizations conducting business with us, guaranteeing that we meet gender diversity requirements in their supply chains. In a global context, the importance of gender diversity is underscored by the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index, revealing that women-led companies have a more significant female representation at all levels. At CELA, we are committed to being a part of the change towards achieving genuine gender equality. The Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) Certification marks a significant step in this journey, and we invite everyone to join us in this commitment.
