A fellow woman biz owner (a male ally connected me with) encouraged me to become WOSB certified as soon as possible. Especially working in the male dominated field of sports, it helps me stand out.

@ceclila It was a 9 week program. With a robust learning environment. It covered, marketing, HR, continuity plans and so much more. There was also a component that allowed us to network and collaborate with other WBEs over that time.

Best practice: login to see what documents you need first. Gather those, then go in, upload, and submit. The online app is easy.
