(Greenwood Village, CO – August 15th 2023) AssurPack® a business specializing in compliant cannabis packaging, is proud to announce national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the WBENC West, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). WBENC Certification is the gold standard for women-owned business certification in the United States.
“I am proud that Assurpack is the first woman owned packaging company in the Cannabis industry to be certified by WBENC. Having always been the first woman in my career in the packaging and pharmaceutical industry, this is a great culmination of my years of paving the way.”, says AssurPack® CEO, Nancy Warner.
The WBENC standard of certification implemented by the WBENC West is a meticulous 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, and that the business has appropriate structure and strategic business planning and implementation in place.
By including women-owned businesses among their suppliers, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier diversity programs, which in turn empowers women as leaders and brings about a more diverse, balanced and sustainable economy.
WBENC Certification combined with professional development and engagement in the WBENC network provides unsurpassed opportunities year-round, both virtually and in-person, for women-owned businesses to grow and expand their business and innovation through events, programming and connections with major corporations and other WBEs.
