Cincinnati, OH, February 2, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Hoi Polloi Trends, a business specializing in making inspiring gifts to spread happiness through its flagship brand, key2Bme, is proud to announce national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Ohio River Valley Women’s Business Council, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
“The certification is one of the most sought-after and respected business certifications in the country,” said key2Bme founder and CEO Tammy Nelson. “Having built this business from my kitchen table into a successful company serving customers nationwide, it was time to put our growing business to the test,” said Nelson. “A business that makes it through the rigorous WBENC certification process is a business prepared to handle whatever it takes and it will open doors for key2Bme with companies that value diversity.”
“More than 350,000 U.S. companies have a supplier diversity program so having this certification will create new opportunities for key2Bme,” said Nelson. “This opportunity will allow us to expand our reach in fulfilling our mission of spreading happiness, kindness and inspiration.”
WBENC’s national standard of certification implemented by the Ohio River Valley Women’s Business Council is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women.
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.
