Advocacy

NAWBO was founded in 1975 to be the first advocacy organization for all women business owners. In the beginning, there were twelve women business owners who met informally in the D.C. area to share information about federal contracts, access to capital and other issues related to their businesses.

Almost 45 years later, we are proud to carry on that legacy. NAWBO provides a platform for women business owners to come together as one voice that translates into a formidable economic force and an effective agent for change in the business environment.

To best represent this diversity within our membership, all the business advocacy issues we engage in are bipartisan in nature. In order to receive support from NAWBO National, a piece of legislation must have support from both Democrats and Republicans, which means members of both parties serve as sponsors and/or original co-sponsors.

    NAWBO’s members are diverse in many ways including size of their business, the sector they serve in, the stage of business development and personal politics. To best represent the diversity within the membership, all the business advocacy issues NAWBO engages in are bipartisan in nature. With the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment, a census underway in 2020, and retirement and business succession planning a topic that is all too often neglected by new and even older business owners, NAWBO has decided to solidify three pillars of importance for public policy in 2020.
