Government Relations

NAWRB works with government organizations, federal officials and members of Congress to advocate for the increased utilization of women-owned businesses across all platforms. We monitor both existing and proposed legislation, regulations and agency policies to provide insight that can improve the access of women-owned businesses to vendor and government contracting opportunities. NAWRB regularly conducts outreach to federal organizations, carries out interviews with leading industry figures and leads a media campaign supporting the advocacy of women in business. This outreach includes uniting our members and C-suite executives with directors from the Office of Minority and Women Inclusion (OMWI), the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), the Small Business Administration (SBA) and more, interviews with the Treasury’s Office of Home Preservation officials about evolving homeownership programs for women and a national media campaign supporting NAWRB’s advocacy efforts.
