Navigating the Process

Please note, we will connect you with an independent consultant, with whom we have partnered for the purpose of helping interested BloomNet® members navigate the process of securing official certification, at the State or Federal level or which is granted by one of several 3rd party organizations.

If you are already diversity-certified through State, Federal or 3rd party organization, we will capture that information from the attestation form as well, so BloomNet® can recognize and track your certifications.
