Business & Professional Women

 

NATIONAL BUSINESS WOMEN'S WEEK


Since 1928 Business and Professional Women has sponsored National Business Women’s Week® (NBWW). Each year during the third full week of October, women across the country take the opportunity to celebrate and acknowledge the accomplishments of working women.

The objectives of NBWW are:

  • To promote full participation and equity for women in the workplace;
  • To publicize the achievements of business and professional women on the local, state and national level;
  • To publicize the objectives and programs of BPW as they relate to the millions of business and professional women across the country.

There are over 70 million women in the workforce. One in every 11 women owns a business. The growth rate of women-owned businesses is twice the national average. Women-owned businesses employ 9.2 million people and generate $1.5 trillion in sales.
