Public Policy & Resources

Public Policy numberAs the voice of women business owners in the metropolitan area, NAWBO GDC seeks to educate members about local, state, and national public policy issues that impact business.   Issues like: access to capital, WBE procurement opportunities, healthcare/entitlement reform, legislation, regulations, and fair & equitable taxes. 

Going beyond education, NAWBO GDC's Public Policy Initiative will also work to encourage the inclusion of women business owners on local / SBA Resource
regional / state boards & commissions.   We also champion our members to transform public policy, influence opinion makers and support women entrepreneurs who seek public office.

NAWBO GDC does not represent or support any political party.
