Power Your Voice

NAWBO members are diverse in many ways, including the size of their business, the sectors and communities they serve, the stage of business development, race, ethnicity, geographic business areas and political leanings that determine policy views. The NAWBO Advocacy Agenda embodies the ever-present need to represent all of our members while creating both the avenue and environment to build sustainable women-owned businesses. NAWBO recently rolled out its agenda for 2022-23 with a focus on microbusiness, the hiring squeeze and more.


To support our chapter and members in their efforts to power their NAWBO voice and impact positive changes in their states and communities, we are pleased to provide a variety of resources. Click on the links below to get started.
