Public Affairs Manager
Jordan Chapman joined the National Women’s Business Council (NWBC) team in February 2022. She currently serves as NWBC’s Public Affairs Manager, leading the Council’s external engagement and internal communications. Jordan is dedicated to weaving wit, fun and a broader understanding about small business programs and women’s business enterprise into her work through initiatives leveraging social media, traditional media outlets, and both virtual and in-person outreach opportunities.
Jordan’s work entails managing messaging, creating graphics, and helping prepare Council Members and NWBC’s Executive Director for media opportunities and various engagement events, such as public meetings, policy roundtables, and issue-specific panels. Her happy place is making sure the Council’s communications remain engaging and accessible to the public, informative to policy influencers, and useful to the Council’s Members.
Prior to joining the team, Jordan interned in two of the three branches of government, assisting with communications in the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement and serving as a press intern with the House Judiciary Committee. In between, she volunteered on a presidential campaign by supporting expansion communications in the lead-up to the election. Both as a student and a professional, Jordan has lent a hand on a voluntary basis to multiple non-profits including Appalachian Voices and her state’s chapter of the Sierra Club. A double hoo, Jordan received her Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science in 2019 from the University of Virginia before completing her Master of Public Policy the following year.
Jordan is determined to help make the voices of others heard through creative content, outreach, and clear communications. This interest is what led Jordan to NWBC. Outside of the office, Jordan loves British television, French cinema, Spanish racing drivers and her dogs, Sadie and Axel. Inside the office, Jordan hates tooting her own horn since she’s more of a guitar player, so writing this bio was like pulling teeth.
