M3 Placement and Partnership, a talent acquisition firm specializing in executive searches, direct placement, and high-volume recruiting, is proud to announce national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the WBEC Metro NY, 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.  


“Growing M3 as a premier national talent acquisition and executive search firm has been a long-standing vision. With this highly recognized certification, we can support more businesses than ever, especially those seeking to work with diversified suppliers. As a partner focused on exceeding the needs of our clients, we are proud to now offer certifications at the national and state level,” says Mary Malone McCarthy, CEO and Founder of M3.  


The WBENC standard of certification implemented by the WBEC Metro NY 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.
