Magnolia Insights Expands Opportunities with Women’s Business Enterprise Certification


(CHICAGO) August 23, 2016Magnolia Insights, a marketing services company specializing in women and mom consumers, announced today it has received national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women’s Business Development Center – Chicago Committee, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).

To further its commitment to advancing women, Magnolia Insights offers GET NOTICED workshops throughout the year. A transformative program focusing on professional and personal development for women in Chicago, the initiative combines Magnolia Insights’ knowledge of female consumer trends and its passion for women empowerment.
