WASHINTON, D.C., March 3, 2019 – Join the National Women’s Business Council (NWBC) in celebrating Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day.

Women-owned businesses are driving economic growth in the United States. They represent 42% of all businesses — nearly 13 million — employing 9.4 million workers and generating revenue of $1.9 trillion. Over the past five years, the annual growth rate in the number of women-owned firms has been more than double that of all businesses.

On March 19, 2020, NWBC will partner with the Small Business Administration (SBA) to showcase how women-owned businesses have grown their revenues by selling overseas. By joining WEBINAR: Take Your Business Global, you’ll learn how SBA can help you participate in the $45 trillion global trade economy. NWBC will share the unique issues faced by women exporters and the creative solutions they are using to find success.

NWBC’s #WebinarWednesday is a multi-series webinar that connects women entrepreneurs and business owners to key advocates, experts, and useful resources in order to bolster their knowledge and skills and elevate their entrepreneurial potential.
