NAWBO is a group dedicated to elevating women business owners
(Phoenix, Ariz.) – The upcoming midterms are monumental, especially for women all across the country as there are a record breaking amount of women running for state and federal offices. A race where two women are the focus, the Arizona U.S. Senate race, is setting the stage to be one of the most anticipated races in the country as Arizona seeks to elect the first female senator in the state’s history.
Ronit Urman, President of NAWBO Phoenix, emphasizes how important is it to have female representation at all levels of government. “Women govern differently than men and having women representing us at the Capitol will bring changes that our male counterparts wouldn’t necessarily think about,” Urman said. “Transforming public policy and influencing decision makers is part of the NAWBO mission and we look forward to working with whoever is elected to be our next senator,” she continued.
NAWBO, the National Association of Women Business Owners, is an organization committed to “strengthening the wealth creating capacity” of their members, along with “promoting economic development within the entrepreneurial community.” Since their founding, the organization has played a significant role in policy development at the local, state, and federal levels. Regardless of party affiliation, NAWBO focuses on positive policy that would empower business owners and women.
Although the candidates are on opposite ends of the political spectrum, the organization views the U.S. Senate race as a win-win as the candidates will encourage the women of the future to run for high office. Urman suggests that the Arizona U.S. Senate race, and other races in which women are the focus, is only the start. “It is only a matter of time before we will have a woman leading the free world as the President of the United States.”
Ronit Urman relocated to the Valley 27 years ago from Israel. She and her husband, Eitan, opened their office Urman Enterprises, a full-service real estate firm specializing in real estate investments, sale, leasing, property management and development. After being a NAWBO attendee for six years, she became president of the NAWBO Phoenix chapter.
