As one of NAWBO's "Top 20 Chapters," NAWBO Richmond takes pride in it’s commitment to leadership, education and encouragement of women-owned businesses in and around the Richmond region. NAWBO Richmond's strength comes from the diversity of its membership—women from all backgrounds, regardless of race, religion, age, sexual orientation, national origin, or disability.
NAWBO features chapters in almost every metropolitan area in the United States, including the Richmond Chapter. NAWBO Richmond was founded in 1982 by a group of like-minded women who understood the need for an association that would support the growth of women-owned business in the metropolitan area. The NAWBO Richmond and Southeast Virginia Chapters joined as one to create the Richmond Chapter in 2016.
