As a certified women-owned business, our clients are assured they receive the high-quality service to which they are accustomed as well as the benefits of meeting any diversity-based purchasing mandates. We opted to seek certification from WBENC because it simply is the national authority on WBE standing and issues. It's a win-win all around.
Springfield, MO (PRWEB) October 16, 2008
Medavera, Inc., a leading provider of medical education services, today announced it has been officially approved as a Women's Business Enterprise (WBE) by the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), the leading third-party certifier of women-owned business status.

With WBE status approved, Medavera is eligible for purchasing under corporate and government supply-chain diversity procurement policies. As a WBENC member, Medavera is entitled to connect with the network of WBENC buyers and sellers and is granted access to WBENC best-practice tools, training, and resources.
Laura McCaskill, President & CEO of Medavera, remarked, "As a certified women-owned business, our clients are assured they receive the high-quality service to which they are accustomed as well as the benefits of meeting any diversity-based purchasing mandates. We opted to seek certification from WBENC because it simply is the national authority on WBE standing and issues. It's a win-win all around."
