Can you believe that women were unable to join the Chamber of Commerce until 1988 unless their husbands were members? That was one of the (many) reasons for the founding of the National Association of Women Business Owners in 1975 and we’re thrilled to welcome Kathy Warnick, NAWBO’s National Chair and Joy Lutes, the Vice President of External Affairs to chat about the groundbreaking work their organization has done over the past 42 years on behalf of the (now) more than 10 million women business owners in the U.S. As they say — women couldn’t get a seat at the table, so they made their own. Working with a network of 60 chapters around the country, they empower and inform women to access the capital they need to build and grow their businesses. NAWBO’s big meeting is coming up on October 15 in Minneapolis and if you are an entrepreneurial woman — or know someone who is — don’t miss this episode to hear from the women doing the boots on the ground work to make it possible.
Founded in 1975, the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) is the unified voice of the more than 10.1 million women business owners in the United States.
Kathy Warnick currently serves as NAWBO National Board Chair. She is also the owner of Warnick Consultants, an accounting and financial management company based in Columbus, OH.
