The National Association of Women Business Owners (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.

2023 National Association of Women Owners

(NAWBO) Advocacy Agenda


NAWBO Advocacy Partners provide NAWBO with more opportunities to speak to decision makers on behalf of our members, and women business owners in general, on issues that are most important to women entrepreneurs today. These issues include health care, procurement opportunities, access to capital, fair and equitable tax treatment for small businesses and more. For details on NAWBO’s public policy platform and legislative highlights—and to get involved to make sure your voice is heard—please visit the rest of our site’s Bipartisan Advocacy efforts page.


From learning about the legislative process to tracking a bill in Congress, the NAWBO Advocacy Toolkit has the information that you need to better understand the inner workings of the federal government.
