“Acknowledgement from the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council truly means the world to Michelle and me,” said SHEEX Co-Founder and CEO, Susan Walvius. “When we created the performance bedding category and founded SHEEX almost a decade ago, our goal was to reinforce just how vital a restful night’s sleep is to a person’s overall performance. SHEEX continues to spur innovation in the category and we are thrilled to be a part of the WBENC community of passionate, women-owned businesses.”
WBENC’s national standard of certification implemented by the Women’s Business Enterprise Council PA-DE-sNJ is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women.
By including women-owned businesses among their suppliers, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier diversity programs.
