We’ve always been proud to be the largest Minority and Woman-owned Business Enterprise (MWBE) in the United States, and the latest recognition in our growing list of accolades helps us broadcast that story to a larger audience.
We announced today that SHI has been certified as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). The certification comes as the result of a meticulous business review and site inspection aimed to confirm that the company is at least 51 percent owned, operated, and controlled by a woman or women.
This isn’t news to us — Thai Lee took over SHI in 1989 and has led the company through consistent and impressive record-breaking organic growth ever since. Many of our customers are familiar with our history as well and choose to work with us not only for our wide array of IT solutions and world-class service, but also for our ability to help them enhance their diversity programs.
However, this national recognition by the WBENC opens a number of new opportunities and gives us a good reason to shout it from the rooftops. Find out more about the certification in the press release we issued this morning.
