TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - RJL Solutions is a communication firm for local businesses. The company received a special certification from the state of Indiana.
The state gave the business this certification for its efforts in diversity. Companies can receive certification with 51% woman ownership.
Owner Rachel Leslie says this is not only good news for them, but also for the clients they represent.
"It gives us the opportunity to be competitive for state bidding requirements as well as allows our clients and those in the community we serve that have diversity requirements to have opportunities. A lot of times businesses are required to have diversity and now RJL Solutions can meet that standard," Leslie told us.
The group says the certification "...elevates clients for contracting purposes. It elevates any business in our community to have a certification of this kind, as well its stakeholders. RJL is committed to undergoing the next steps and certifications needed to help clients, community, teammates and ourselves succeed, and obtaining this certification heightens this ability."
