Celebrating women in business
Monday, October 02, 2017
The proliferation of women in the business world is a recent phenomenon. An American Express OPEN report indicates the number of women-owned businesses increased by 45 percent between 2007 and 2016.
President Reagan signed H.R. 5050, the Women's Business Ownership Act, in 1988. This law has been instrumental in reducing barriers for female entrepreneurs. October is a month to reflect on the status of women in business, celebrate their advancements and commemorate the landmark legislation that helped usher in this wave of progress.
We join the National Women’s Business Council in celebrating the advancements of women-owned businesses this month. Find out more: https://www.nwbc.gov/
