Women’s Participation in Exporting

Screen Shot 2015-03-22 at 9.37.12 AM

We are excited to learn that the National Women’s Business Council (NWBC) is working on an extensive study, “Women’s Participation in Exporting,” which will:

Initiate the creation of a dataset similar to the data analyzed by Barbara Orser in her 2011 paper in the 2015 fiscal year. The SBA Office of Advocacy has expressed interest as well; together, the NWBC and the Office of Advocacy have opened discussions with Census about “contracting” this research to their office. A report analyzing the data would potentially commence in FY2016.

Together with NWBC, we know that encouraging women-owned, women-led firms to internationalize represents an economic development opportunity.

NWBC says:

Without accurate information about the influence of gender, opportunities for growth and international trade may not realize their full potential, possibly leading to sub-optimal economic welfare.

We look forward to working with the NWBC to help make this project a success and will share with all of you progress updates as they become available.
