The Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) is the nation's leading advocate of women-owned businesses as suppliers to America's corporations and the largest third-party certifier of businesses owned and operated by women in the United States. In 2011, Hargrove was certified by the association as a woman-owned business.

The National Conference, which attracts thousands of attendees, features more than 350 exhibitors, including leading corporations and government agencies.

Hargrove also produced the organization’s 2011 Salute to Women Business Enterprise event, which is a comprehensive two-day program and gala that salutes WBENC's award-winning Women's Business Enterprise Stars for their achievements and leadership and pays tribute to America's Top Corporations for Women's Business Enterprises.
