Kaleidoscope WBENC certification!

A message from our founder.

Since working in my career for over 26 years, I have always had extra respect for businesses with the WBENC certification. And now, it held value to anyone who worked with these certified companies. Now fast forward to the fact I owned my own business I knew that I wanted to attempt to get this certification as well.
The process is a lengthy one with many steps and details. And I was thankful to have a colleague who is also certified to assist me with the initial setup.
I am beyond thrilled to have Kaleidoscope now certified as a WBENC. And know this will have a lasting impact on our business at large.
Christine Peter, IIDA
