The National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) was established in 1975 by a group of like-minded businesswomen to serve as the collective voice of women business owners across the country and advocate on behalf of their entrepreneurial interests. These women understood that the rules and laws being passed in Washington, D.C. and in state capitals across the country could either help or harm their ability to succeed in business. So they united in a mission to advocate with their elected officials on behalf of themselves and all women business owners.
Today, women business owners are the fastest growing segment of the U.S. economy. NAWBO is proud to count thousands of these 9.1 million women business owners among our membership in chapters in every major city across the U.S. As part of our mission today, we work to propel women entrepreneurs into economic, social and political spheres of power by strengthening the wealth-creating capacity of our members and promoting economic development within the entrepreneurial community; creating innovative and effective change in the business culture; building strategic alliances, coalitions and affiliations; and transforming public policy and influencing opinion makers.
