DiversityCADRE – YOUR WBE PARTNER IN SUCCESS
As a certified Women's Business Enterprise (WBE), recognized by the National Women Business Owners Corporation (NWBOC) and the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), Cadre offers a unique partnership opportunity for customers employing supplier diversity initiatives.
The WBE certification for women-owned businesses is one of the most widely recognized and respected certifications in the nation, one in which many corporations, including Wal-Mart, Coca-Cola, IBM, and Exxon Mobil, have trusted to meet their needs.
Cadre CEO & Chairman, Sandra Laney, sees the key driver of supporting WBEs not in compliance, but in economic development, as women-owned businesses are emerging as one of the fastest-growing segments in our nation's recovering economy.
