Since 1982 the Richmond Chapter of NAWBO has been a strong voice for Central Virginia’s female business owners. Winner of the national “Healthy Chapter Award,” NAWBO Richmond is composed of dynamic, diverse, and powerful community entrepreneurs and corporate sponsors that encourage and enhance successes through programs designed to:

  • Generate business opportunities
  • Build strategic alliances
  • Influence public policy
  • Promote leadership throughout the civic and business community

I originally joined NAWBO so that I could network with women to grow the business and to give me a reprieve from the testosterone-heavy IT world. What I found was so much more.
—Jennifer Whitlock, The HelpDesk Company
