Public Policy

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.

NAWBO was founded in 1975 to open doors for women entrepreneurs by transforming public policy and influencing opinion makers. 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.

NAWBO has continued to represent the issues and concerns of small and women-owned businesses at the national and state levels. Through Congressional testimony, public policy conferences and member education, NAWBO has been at the forefront of advocacy on behalf of women business owners and the issues that impact their companies. Join with NAWBO to represent the interests of the fastest growing segment of the economy.


In 2017, NAWBO will continue to pursue a public policy agenda that positions NAWBO at the forefront of issues that impact our members while continuing to increase our visibility and credibility with elected officials, agency personnel, peer organizations and members of the media. We will also continue to build and strengthen partnerships and coalitions and credibility to ensure our members are represented and seen as thought leaders on issues of importance to business owners.
