Propelling women entrepreneurs into economic, social and political spheres of power worldwide
National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) is the voice of America’s 10.6 million women-owned businesses. Since 1975, NAWBO has helped women evolve their businesses by sharing resources and providing a single voice to shape economic and public policy. NAWBO is the only dues-based national organization representing the interests of all women entrepreneurs in all types of businesses. There are chapters of NAWBO in almost every metropolitan area. NAWBO is represented in 33 countries across the world through its affiliation with Les Femmes Chefs d’ Enterprises Mondiales (World Association of Women Entrepreneurs). NAWBO’s strength comes from the diversity of its membership – all sizes from sole proprietorship to hundreds of employees; every industry from construction, importers, retailers to service providers – and in all areas of the country. Membership is open to sole proprietors, partners and corporate owners with day-to-day management responsibility. Active members who live in a chapter area automatically join both chapter and national. There is an At-Large Chapter for the women business owners outside the chapter areas. NAWBO National website.
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.
One of NAWBO’s greatest strengths is our ability to build strategic alliances, coalitions and affiliations with corporate and affinity partners that help support and propel the growth and prosperity of women-owned businesses. NAWBO serves as the most effective and direct access to a community of successful women entrepreneurs. NAWBO offers you the ability to build a meaningful and mutually beneficial partnership that helps to strengthen the wealth-creating capacity of our members and promote economic development.
