Today, the National Women’s Business Council (NWBC) releases its annual report focusing on economic issues of importance to women business owners. Each year NWBC delivers its annual report along with policy recommendations to the President, Congress, and the Small Business Administration.

This year’s annual report addresses 4 main areas to advance women entrepreneurs: Access to Capital, Access to Markets, Job Creation & Growth, and Data Collection.

“The National Women’s Business Council’s annual report researches cutting-edge issues, assimilates and articulates reliable data, and provides insights into our policy recommendations,” said NWBC Chair Carla Harris. “Our independent and innovative research lays the groundwork for policy makers, the private sector, and the women’s business community to act strategically towards advancing women business owners.”

The National Women’s Business Council continues to be a leading voice in advancing the women’s entrepreneurship agenda with a strong focus on providing key insights and solutions to increasing economic gains for women business owners.
