What is an MWBE (Minority and Women Business
A qualified minority enterprise is a business that is at least 51% owned, controlled* and managed** by one or more minority group members or women. For the purpose of this program, a minority group member is a U.S. citizen that is of African American, Hispanic American, Asian Pacific American, Subcontinent Asian American or Native American heritage.
A woman-owned enterprise is a business that is at least 51% owned by a nonminority woman who is a U.S. citizen and controls* and operates** the business.
*Control means exercises the power to make policy decisions.
**Manage or operate means has involvement in the day-to-day management of the business.

Sybase realizes that there are multiple approaches to diversifying the supply base of our enterprise. Some of our business needs require large, global companies for national or global deals. Other requirements can leverage small, nimble, local vendors that can meet special needs. When we source, we do so at a national level, a project level and sometimes on a contract by contract basis. The companies we evaluate can be national, regional or local as long as they meet the diverse needs and objectives of our stakeholders.
