Celebrating International Women's Day

Safety Management Systems, Inc. is a women-owned company, founded by Christien Ducker.

This year, we're shamelessly using International Women's Day as an excuse to show off all our Women-Owned Business certifications:

  • Women-Owned Business Enterprise by the Women's Business Enterprise National Council

  • Minority & Women Owned Business Enterprise by NY & NJ Port Authority

  • Minority & Women Owned Business Enterprise by Westchester County

  • Economically Disadvantaged Women Owned Small Business by SAM.gov

  • National Women Business Owners Corporation by SBA

  • Women Owned Small Business by CT Conference of Municipalities

  • Women's Business Enterprise by City of Jersey City, NJ

Working with an Women-Owned Business Enterprise (WBE) not only helps the women-owned business, but it also benefits your business, your clients, and the community.


Win more state contracts by working with a WBE.

State and federal organizations have diversity spending benchmarks and often include MWBE spending requirements worked into their RFPs. Exceeding these requirements is guaranteed to make you a more attractive candidate to these agencies. The City of New York, for example, requires contractors to do 10% of their business with Women-Owned Enterprises.


Increase revenue by working with a WBE.

The US government gives tax incentives to companies who do business with Women-Owned Enterprises. There are also reduced tax liabilities on federal or state grants or loans for projects that use Women-Owned Business Enterprise suppliers. Working with a certified woman-owned business can also help increase your overall profitability with as much as a 130% return on investment, according to a study conducted by the Hackett Group.
