DARIEN, Conn. - May 4, 2021 - PRLog -- Living Abroad, the go-to source for destination information and tools for global mobility managers and corporate travel programs, announced today that it has been designated a WBENC-Certified Women's Business Enterprise, or WBE, by the Women's Business Enterprise Council (WBENC).

WBENC certification is the most recognized and prestigious certification of its kind. Businesses seeking WBENC certification undergo a thorough vetting process to verify that the business is at least 51% woman-owned, operated, and controlled.

Cathy Heyne, president and owner of Living Abroad, said: "We're pleased to be recognized by the WBENC as a WBE. The designation is more than a recognition of our ownership status. It connects us to a prestigious network of women-owned businesses and aligns with our own company values."

Said Michael Cadden, vice president: "This designation verifies our commitment to leadership diversity in not just recommending it, but in doing it. Through working with Living Abroad, clients can achieve their own initiatives and demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion."


WBENC was founded in 1997 to develop a nationwide standard for women-owned business certification. Since then, the organization has grown to become the largest third-party certifier of businesses owned, controlled, and operated by women in the United States and a leading advocate for women-owned businesses in corporate and government supply chains.

A 501(c)(3) non-profit, WBENC partners with 14 Regional Partner Organizations to provide its world-class standard of certification to women-owned businesses throughout the country and offers programming and resources to help women-owned businesses thrive. Visit
