As a council, we have continued to progress in our mission of providing sound research and key initiatives to expand and improve opportunities for women-owned and women-led businesses to thrive.
As we move into our next quarter of a century we will continue to focus on providing independent, intensive, innovative research and to make progressive recommendations to Congress, the SBA, and White House Administration on issues related to women in business."
