Hello there — and happy Women’s History Month!
Every year, during the month of March, we celebrate the great contributions of women — because it is this history that reminds us that progress is a perpetual process embedded in the human spirit. We’ll be spending the next 31 days highlighting the legendary women entrepreneurs that have paved the way for the now 10 million women business owners in the country, and the aspiring boss ladies of the future. Please join us as we recognize amazing women and their profound impact as innovators, inventors, industry disruptors, and more.
We have a few things in the works — and we wanted you to be the first to know…
The Council is reclaiming the “that’s what she said” meme and launching a new Instagram campaign today. This graphic campaign will feature the insights of women entrepreneurs, showcasing their honest advice, nuggets of wisdom, and words of inspiration. Check out the #ThatsWhatSheSaid campaign on Instagram!

We’re partnering with the White House Council for Women and Girls for a special event on women’s entrepreneurship next Monday at 3pm ET. We’ll be sharing brand new research on women’s business ownership and the growth and development in this post-recession era. Spoiler alert: there’s a surge! And we’ve pulled together a great panel of speakers from the Administration to recognize the policy makers and the recent policy efforts that have contributed to the unprecedented growth in women’s entrepreneurship. You can tune in for this public meeting online – RSVP here and we’ll send you the link to the livestream on Monday morning.
There is great power in storytelling, so we’re renewing the #HerOwnBoss campaign this month. Be sure to check our blog for profiles of our awesome Council Members. We’ll be posting new content on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays for the rest of the month. We know that every woman and every business has a story – and there are lessons in those journeys for all to learn from. We also asked all of our members for their go to pick-me-up song and have a great playlist coming your way. Check out the NWBC blog for weekly updates.
There’s more, but we’ll save that update for next week.
We are honored and grateful to be part of this movement with you. Here’s to celebrating the history — and the future! — of women in business all month long.
