For Immediate Release  
January 30, 2024

Edmonds, WA – The Vida Agency (TVA), a woman-and-minority-owned, social impact marketing agency is proud to announce national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women’s Business Enterprise Council – Pacific, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). WBENC Certification is the gold standard for women-owned business certification in the United States. 

“We are thrilled to achieve WBENC certification and look forward to pursuing new business opportunities via access to the many U.S. corporations that support women-owned companies by accepting WBENC certification,” shares Amalia Martino, Founder and President, The Vida Agency. “We are also eager to collaborate with other likeminded women business owners at upcoming WBENC events and tapping into the many business resources, adds Martino.” 

The WBENC standard of certification implemented by the Women’s Business Enterprise Council – Pacific, is a meticulous process, including an in-depth review of the business and a site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated, and controlled by a woman or women, and that the business has appropriate structure and strategic business planning and implementation in place.   
 
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, which in turn empowers women as leaders and brings about a more diverse, balanced, and sustainable economy.  

WBENC Certification combined with professional development and engagement in the WBENC network provides unsurpassed opportunities year-round, both virtually and in-person, for women-owned businesses to grow and expand their business and innovation through events, programming, and connections with major corporations and other WBEs.
