2022 Annual Report

Grouping of women with various careers

We are pleased to present the National Women’s Business Council’s (NWBC) 2022 Annual Report featuring this year’s body of policy recommendations to the President, Congress, and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), which addresses those issues of greatest importance to U.S. women-owned small businesses (WOSBs). This year, NWBC remained focused on the following priority topics: access to capital and opportunity, rural women’s entrepreneurship, and women in STEM. This year’s report also introduces our new Council Members who joined NWBC during fiscal year 2022, covers the Council’s digital and social media engagement activities, as well as new research on how women invest and how they may be leveraged as a force for good and prospective investors in women-owned startups.
