Government Certification = Business
The federal government and many city and state governments have programs designed to increase the flow of contracts to minority-owned and women-owned businesses. A recent example of a firm winning status as a women-owned business is Public Communications Inc. of Chicago. It won the designation of "Women's Business Enterprise" from the Women's Business Development Center, Chicago, and is seeking similar recognition from city, county, state and federal offices.
