Established in 1996, NAWBO Columbus has a longstanding history in the greater Columbus area. We are currently the largest chapter in the nation and pride ourselves in elevating women business owners through connections, advocacy and mentorship.

In principle and in practice, NAWBO values and seeks a diverse and inclusive membership. NAWBO seeks full participation in the organization by all business owners who support our mission to empower women entrepreneurs, regardless of race, religion, age, sexual orientation, national origin or disability. NAWBO’s goal is to effectively represent the full diversity of the women business owner community and to expand access to leadership opportunities across the full spectrum of our membership.
