With the groundbreaking attainment of sole source authority by the Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Program, 2015 saw the release of our Diversity and Inclusion Leadership Council (NDILC), through which we are working to increase the number of C-suite women across America and helping eliminate gender-based barriers within the workplace.

unnamed-6In early 2016, NAWRB expanded our reach into the domestic space with our Women’s Homeownership Initiative (WHI), committed to increasing women’s homeownership and decreasing women’s poverty levels across the country.

Shortly after the federal government’s historic achievement in women-owned small business contracting in March 2016, NAWRB introduced our Women’s Global Resource Center (NWGRC), providing a women’s depository for vendors and clients to grow their diverse spend and increase women’s employment at all levels.

Our founder and CEO, Desirée Patno, along with NAWRB’s Government Relations Committee, was in attendance at last week’s historic White House United State of Women’s Summit. Through our advocacy and media platform, we will continue providing a voice and fighting to create change for women.

White House Drives Revolutionary Change for Women

“It Has Never Been A Better Time To Be A Woman In The United States” echoed throughout this week’s White House United State of Women Summit. Women had the opportunity to unite and support each other of gender equality across topics of Economic Empowerment, Health & Wellness, Educational Opportunity, Violence Against Women, Entrepreneurship & Innovation and Leadership & Civic Engagement.

Take the Pledge: #StateofWomen
I will be in charge of my own body. Every powerful part. I will learn whatever I want like it’s nobody’s business. I will stand by my game-changing ideas. I will use my voice to stand up for my community. I will get paid the same as everyone else doing the same job. I will call out sexism when I see it. I will not be a silent bystander.  The United State of Women

This historical inaugural closed event to only 5,000 privileged attendees created intense synergy rather than competition among women to showcase their stories and struggles on a national scale. The White House brought the women’s movement to the forefront and NAWRB gained incredible support and strength for Women in the Housing Ecosystem.
