This module is for Women, Minorities, Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay or Transgender, and Veterans Certification. Obtaining your Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) or Women Business Enterprise (WBE) Certification is the process that a business enterprise claiming to be a woman, minority-owned or veteran-owned business is able to verify the company’s 51% ownership by a minority or group of minorities that are US-citizens, and owned, managed and operated on a daily basis by the minority of group or minority owners. Minority-owned businesses form a significant portion of the U.S. economy. In 2012, 8.0 million minorities owned businesses contributed $1.38 trillion in revenue and 7.2 million jobs to the economy.
This means that the U.S. minority population has grown rapidly. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 37% of the U.S. population identifies as part of at least one minorityclass. While the National Association of Women Business Owners or NAWBO tells us that more than 11.3 million firms are owned by women, employing nearly nine million people, and generating $1.7 trillion in sales receipts as of 2017. For minorities and women, there is money on the table to make and you will learn how to win your slice of the pie in this module. This is an eye-opening training module.
