Our journey to this certification was no easy feat; it involved a meticulous evaluation of Quadra’s ownership, leadership, and business practices. Betty Infilise, Co-founder, and majority owner of Quadra’s US organization, reflects on the company’s ethos, stating, “Never putting a ceiling on female leadership has been part of Quadra’s DNA from its inception, long before the world was moving in that direction. Our company was founded with equality in mind and has been operating that way for over 45 years.”  

“I echo Betty’s powerful statement. Being recognized as a Women-Owned Business is not just a badge of honor; it reflects our dedication to excellence and inclusivity,” explains Anne Marie Infilise, Quadra’s President and CEO. “As a Women-Owned and Women-Led company, we believe in the power of diversity to drive innovation, foster creativity, and create positive change within our industry. Many of our customers and suppliers are looking to partner with companies that prioritize diversity. This certification aligns so well with our Why statement around putting people first so that together, we can reimagine the possibilities, which is exactly what we are doing every day.” 

As we proudly embrace our role as a certified Women-Owned Business, our journey is still just beginning. We are continuously seeking the next step, pushing boundaries, and striving for excellence. Through our leadership, dedication, and unwavering commitment to equality, we not only redefine success but also pave the way for a more inclusive future in the business world. Together with WEConnect International, we look forward to championing diversity, fostering innovation, and driving positive change on a global scale.
