Envision Lighting Design, LLC is thrilled to announce they have been awarded the prestigious WBENC certification by the Women's Business Development Council - Midwest, a regional partner organization of the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). The WBENC's national standard of certification is the most prestigious of its kind, and requires a meticulous review of the business plus a site inspection to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated, and controlled by women. This new certification will allow ELD to provide additional benefits to their clients - besides helping them get the light right on their projects, ELD now has another tool to help them achieve their project diversity goals for design.
Envision Lighting Design's founding principal, Lisa J. Reed says, "We are proud of our status as a woman-owned company, and the WBENC is more than just another certification for us. You will always find us advocating for women, students, and diversity in the workplace. We are looking forward to joining the great WBENC network and to the access it will give us to WBENC Corporate Members. These members represent corporations and government entities who share our values and are committed to supplier diversity."
