Our purpose is to lift up women business owners and help them thrive.
For over 45 years, we’ve provided a nurturing community for women business owners to come together, learn and promote one another. We’ve fostered strong corporate collaborations and strategic alliances, and over the years, have developed into a formidable economic force and change agent for the Greater DC and national business environment.
We know how hard running a business can be. We’ve been there.
You’re constantly being challenged, needing to adapt quickly, having to learn new skills, and operating in a state of not-knowing. Self-doubt can creep in. Not to mention: it can be isolating, too.
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
NAWBO members are women business owners, and we’ve all needed help and support at some point. We’ve turned to our sisterhood for education, guidance and support, and even advocacy in navigating business complexities.
It has meant everything to have a collaborative, nurturing group of high-caliber women by our side.
Discover how our sisterhood can help your business rise.
