The National Women’s Business Council (NWBC) is honored to present the NWBC 2023 Annual Report, which captures all of the engagement opportunities, research initiatives, notable legislation and resiliency resources the Council connected with over the past year. As always, the highlight of the report is the rich and in-depth policy recommendations section. In 2024, NWBC remained focused on access to capital and opportunity and women in STEM, though broadened its view on rural women’s entrepreneurship to bring more women to the table by shifting to prioritizing inclusive entrepreneurial ecosystems. The 2023 Annual Report not only features tailored recommendations and targeted policy levers to make an impact in the areas above, but also uplifts stories from key voices in women’s entrepreneurship. We are proud to be able to share these recommendations with the White House, Congress, and the Administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration.
