The National Women’s Business Council (NWBC) has released its 2014 Annual Report, “Building Bridges: Leveraging Research and Relationships to Impact the Business Climate for Women.”
This report is a synthesis of our research and the implications of our findings for the women’s entrepreneurship ecosystem. Our [NWBC] research confirms that the full economic participation of women and their success in business can significantly contribute to job growth in this country and is critical to the continued economic recovery. But, they also highlight the disparities and challenges women entrepreneurs face in their business pursuits.
One summary mentioned in the report is how in September 2014, the Council explored the issue of women’s access to markets during their Public Meeting at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, DC — “An Afternoon with the National Women’s Business Council: Tea, Cookies, and #AccesstoMarkets,” which included three workshops to highlight opportunities for women in these marketplaces:
- Get Ready for Primetime – on government contracting
- Make Your Fortune from the Fortune 500– on corporate supplier diversity
- Go Global, Get Your Export On – on exporting
