Women’s Business Enterprise National Certification

Apex Imaging Services has received national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) by the Women’s Business Enterprise Council – West, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).

“We are proud to count Apex Imaging Services as one of the 11,500 certified WBEs in the U.S.,” said Pamela S. Williamson, Ph.D, President/CEO, Women’s Business Enterprise Council – West. WBENC’s national standard of certification provided by the Women’s Business Enterprise Council – West Certification Committee is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and a site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm that the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women. According to WBENC, by including women-owned businesses among their vendors, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier/vendor diversity programs.

“We are pleased to receive this important certification by WBENC and we are honored to be a part of this great organization that promotes and fosters growth for women-owned businesses,” said Kathleen Hargrave, President/ Owner of Apex Imaging Services.
