Abator can’t be the only certified business that craves an open forum on supplier diversity from the owners’ point-of-view. This blog is dedicated to connecting SDMWVLGBTBE (Small, Disadvantaged or Disabled, Minority, Women, Veteran, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Transgendered Business Enterprise) owners to give us all a place to discuss the pros, cons, challenges and benefits of getting, renewing and using a diverse business certification.

Our conversations about certification are objectively neutral.  We believe each business must choose the certification and certifying agency that offers the best value for it and its customers.  If you’re having difficulty deciding, request a copy of our certification strategies article (DiversityBlog@Abator.com).
