We are pleased to announce that JONES ROBB, PLLC has again received national certification from the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE). The firm has been certified by the WBENC for 9 years. In addition to its WBENC certification, Jones Robb, PLLC is also certified as a Woman Owned Small Business (WOSB) by the United States Small Business Administration (SBA).
“At a time when the public and private sectors are scrutinizing how women are treated and valued in the workplace, it is important for us to highlight our commitment to women and to diversity,” said Jones Robb partner Liz Burke.
“We are proud to maintain our certification as a WBE,” said Susanne Jones, founding and managing partner of Jones Robb. “While providing premier patent legal services has always been our first priority as a firm, certification as a WBE was an early and important milestone that helped our clients achieve their supplier diversity goals. Moreover, being part of the WBENC network allows us to foster relationships with other women-owned and operated companies, confirming our belief that diversity is not just a core value but a smart business philosophy.”
WBENC Certification validates that the business is at least 51 percent owned, controlled, operated, and managed by a woman or women. It is among the most rigorous certification of its kind.
