A woman-owned business, like Holman, Inc., can help you achieve your supplier diversity goals on your next commercial project.
In Florida, there are more than one million women-owned businesses operating within the state. Holman, Inc. is proud to be one of them and has recently been ranked by the Jacksonville Business Journal as one of Jacksonville’s top woman-owned businesses—coming in on the list at #16.
But what exactly does it mean to be a woman-owned business? Just as the designation suggests, it’s a business owned by a woman. Florida’s Office of Supplier Diversity officially defines this as one that is no less than 51% owned and managed by a woman who is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident alien. Women-owned businesses in Florida that meet specific eligibility requirements can apply through the state to be officially certified as a women’s business enterprise (WBE). While not required, WBE certification serves as a women-owned business’ official verification, which can open up more opportunities.
How can a woman-owned business benefit you?
Today, diversity is becoming increasingly more important, even in the construction industry. As clients increase their supplier diversity goals for their commercial construction projects, the Architectural Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry has embraced diversity. Every day, more and more AEC-related businesses are becoming certified as woman-owned (WBE), minority-owned (MBE), and Veteran-owned (VBE). Certified WBEs (as well as MBEs and VBEs) can help you reach supplier diversity goals while providing your commercial construction project with quality, professional services.
