We’re NAWBO – the National Association of Women Business Owners.

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.

Everybody Welcomed Me with Open Arms and I Felt Right at Home

When I first joined the NAWBO Greater DC Board, everybody welcomed me with open arms, and I felt right at home. The Board gave me the opportunity to connect on a more personal level with some amazing women and learn skills that I use daily in my career. Without being involved, I would have never known as much as I know now about this great organization and all of the wonderful events it has to offer. Being a Board member made me realize the need NAWBO has for volunteers and membership. It is the hard work, dedication, passion, energy and experience of our members that enhances the programs NAWBO offers and keeps the organization going. If you would like to meet creative minds that fire you up, and care about making women voices heard in the business community, join us!
