We're a Women-Owned Business

As both a woman-owned and minority-owned business, inclusivity and diversity are core values at Akorbi. Establishing human connections through language is how we build a bridge between people of different backgrounds in the global economy. Akorbi is proud to be both a woman-owned business and a worldwide leader in language services. We’re also the largest women-owned language services provider (LSP) in the United States as ranked by Common Sense Advisory (CSA), Nimdzi Insights, and Slator.

What does it mean to be a certified women-owned business?

Women owned icon

Women-owned is an initiative from the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) and WEConnect International to create a movement of support for women-owned businesses.

Across the globe, women-owned businesses supply an incredible range of products and services. The women-owned logo enables consumers to identify those products and services supplied by women-owned businesses during their shopping experience.

Any storefronts, websites, and product labels bearing the women-owned logo have been certified as being at least 51 percent (more than half) owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council in American and WEConnect International around the world.
