Write Connections | strategy + design Announces Diversity Certification
Write Connections certified as a Minority Owned Business
Elkhart, IN— Write Connections | strategy + design, LLC. is proud to announce its certification by the National Minority Supplier Development Council as a Minority Business Enterprise (MBE). Write Connections is entirely minority-owned, and the certification acknowledges the firm’s commitment to the diversity and inclusion ecosphere.
The firm has been certified as both a Minority-owned Business Enterprise (MBE) and a Woman-owned Business Enterprise (WBE) with the state of Indiana since 2020. For founder Jess Koscher, this next level of certification reinforces Write Connection’s commitment to supporting the WMBE designations and her commitment to supporting other WMBE businesses.
Since 2008, Koscher has been an active voice in the DEI space. She sat on United Way Worldwide’s Diversity & Inclusion Council until 2015; currently participates in the South Bend Elkhart Regional Partnership Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council, trains companies on topics of DEI, and consults with both for-profit and nonprofit companies about diversity and inclusion practices.
“So many times, diversity and inclusion work is made to feel threatening. Only first responders run toward scary and uncomfortable things. Diversity and inclusion don’t have to be scary; it shouldn’t be scary. It’s too important to look away from. Our effort to become a certified business is a part of our firm’s commitment to being authentic and supporting diversity and inclusion as a business practice. We believe in supporting our local community and celebrating where we come from,” says founder Jess Koscher.
As a part of being a certified WMBE, Write Connections is listed in both state and national directories for businesses who focus on doing business with WMBEs. Write Connections is a marketing/advertising firm that also offers strategic services, including strategic planning, training, and DEI work.
