Resources for Certified Women Owned Businesses
As a certified Women Owned Business (by WBENC in the U.S. or WEConnect Internationally) you have the exclusive ability to use the Women Owned Logo to market your business, services and/or products. No matter how long you have been certified - one month or 10 years - it’s never too late to take advantage of the Women Owned Logo as a differentiator for your business!
Download the Logo
To maintain the integrity of the Logo and ensure exclusive access, we store all logo files and brand guidelines in WBENCLink2.0. Simply log-in and look for the link to “Logo and Brand Guidelines” under the Certification Corner section. (TIP: if you don’t remember your login information, click Login and Forgot Username / Account Lookup to search for your account.)
Once you download the logo files, add the Women Owned Logo to your business cards, website, email signature, pitch decks, product labels, marketing collateral… you name it! (TIP: If you do business primarily with the government or corporations, consider using the WBE Seal instead, which is also available for download in WBENCLink2.0.)
