Our commitment to Advocacy runs deep, and it is what sets us apart from other women’s business organizations.
The National Association of Woman Business Owners (NAWBO) was founded in 1975 in Washington, DC to serve as one voice representing the issues and concerns of woman-owned businesses at the national and state levels for change in the business environment. NAWBO’s goal is to effectively represent the full diversity of the woman business owner community, regardless of industry or company size, and regardless or race, religion, age, abilities, or sexual orientation of the owner.
Each year, NAWBO-National hosts an Advocacy Day and Academy for Public Service in Washington D.C. to encourage NAWBO members to be involved in the democratic process at all levels of government. NAWBO-Atlanta offers regular educational opportunities to learn about local candidates, issues, and policies that affect our professional lives. Together, we work with Congress and the Administration on issues relating to and impacting woman business owners.
2019 Public Policy Agenda
NAWBO-Atlanta will continue to pursue a public policy agenda that positions us at the forefront of the issues that impact our members, including: Access to Capital, Education, Government Contracting, Regulatory Reform, Taxes, and Technology Development and Adoption. We will continue to build and strengthen partnerships, coalitions, and credibility to ensure our members are represented and seen as leaders on issues of importance to business owners.
