Clinical Resources Achieves WBE Certification

NWBOC CERTIFICATION - On May 10, 2010, NWBOC awarded the company this designation.

The first WBE Certifier: the National Women Business Owners Corporation provides a national certification program for women owned business. The certification called “Women Business Enterprise” (WBE) certification, ensures that a private, for-profit company, is truly owned and operated by a woman.

The National Women Business Owners Corporation (NWBOC) has led the way for women business owners to obtain WBE Certification. Created in 1995, NWBOC was established to increase competition for corporate and government contracts through implementation of a national certification program for women business owners. The development of our national Woman Business Enterprise (WBE) certification program, sponsored by IBM, involved cooperation and input from over 700 public and private sector individuals. The result was the creation of the WBE Application, the process, and the NWBOC Standards and Procedures.

NWBOC was created in response to needs identified by the Procurement Special Interest Group of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO.) The investigation revealed that to a large degree corporate America and government agencies had not received, nor recognized, the benefits of contracting with women suppliers. Only a small fraction of corporate and government contracts were with women-owned firms. This mindset prevented purchasers from obtaining the best value in their procurements, and it limited women business owners from penetrating these markets, which has stymied their business growth. Research has shown that after developing supplier partnerships with women-owned firms, many companies and government agencies have enhanced their bottom line for their shareholders, and taxpayers, respectively.

Ernst & Young Entrepreneurial Winning Woman 2009

Jennifer Scully, President and CEO was recognized and awarded as one of the Ernst & Young Entrepreneurial Winning Women in 2009.  

Jennifer Scully, President and CEO was recognized and awarded as one of the Ernst & Young Entrepreneurial Winning Women in 2009. The program identified and selected 9 women entrepreneurs who had successfully launched a company with the resources and insights to accelerate the growth of their businesses.  The program is conducted in collaboration with the Women Presidents’ Organization, Women’s Business Enterprise National Council, the Committee of 200 and Babson College.

Entrepreneurial Winning Women join a network of high-growth companies, including accomplished entrepreneurs recognized through the 24 year-old Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The YearTM program, and participate in a customized program designed to accelerate the growth of their businesses.

Winners must have exhibited the creativity, tenacity and plan necessary to realize their companies’ full potential and the confidence and conviction to drive toward market leadership. In addition, Entrepreneurial Winning Women must have a level of business sophistication needed to interact effectively with potential investors, high-level business advisors and top executives.

"Entrepreneurial Winning Women is so needed because women entrepreneurs have a lot to offer the US and world economy. We have innovative ideas, we’re multi-taskers with great people skills and we’re very resourceful. However, we tend to have a ‘fear of flying,’ and so Ernst & Young really helps open doors and therefore take our companies to new levels of growth and success."
