To be included in our Supplier Diversity Program, we require a statement confirming your company’s status as a WMBE or an independent third-party certification. Crowell & Moring encourages minority and women vendors to be certified by the Women's Business Enterprise National Council or the National Minority Supplier Development Council, or through other regional partners and affiliates. On a case-by-case basis, we may also consider other certifications that meet the nationally recognized certification standards of at least 51 percent ownership and management and control by minority and/or women group members.
