A Busy May At NWBC

National Women’s Business Council

NWBC Held A Public Meeting

 

NWBC Public Meeting on May 3rd

 

The National Women’s Business Council (NWBC) held a virtual public meeting on May 3rd via Zoom from 12:30-2:30 PM EDT. The meeting provided Council Members as well as members of the public the opportunity to hear from women’s business organizations and other experts directly on the issues that matter most to women entrepreneurs. We are so grateful to:

Our speakers, who presented a bold vision for what women's entrepreneurship could look like in this country and meaningful pathways for making progress.

Our Council Members, current and new, who listened attentively and will use this knowledge to shape the direction of the Council's policy recommendations.

But most importantly, members of the public, who asked thoughtful questions, engaged in their own dialogues in the comments and beyond, and who guide all that we do. 

For those who could not attend, a recording of the event can be found on our YouTube channel and more information will be available on our website soon.

Happy Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

 

Happy Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Heritage Month!

 

Happy Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) Heritage Month! This past month, we wanted to celebrate the contribution of the AANHPI community to the national economy by noting that AANHPI-owned businesses employ millions of Americans, produce hundreds of billions of dollars in receipts, and have a growth rate that significantly outpaces the national average. The AANHPI community’s spirit of entrepreneurship is and has always been vital to our nation’s prosperity.
