NAWBO Phoenix's March 9 Meeting to Celebrate Women's History Month

NAWBO Phoenix's March 9 meeting will feature a panel of past NAWBO presidents to talk about the strides made by women business owners.

Phoenix, AZ, February 26, 2016 --( March as Women’s History Month has its roots from March 8, 1857 when women from New York City factories protested their working conditions. Congress established Women’s History Week in 1981 and then expanded the celebration to the month of March in 1987.

Join members of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO), Phoenix Chapter, and their guests on Wednesday, March 9 as they celebrate Women’s History Month. The luncheon event features a panel of past presidents of NAWBO Phoenix, an organization celebrating its 30th year. Panelists will talk about strides made by women business owners and what the future may hold. The panel will be moderated by Kristin Slice, owner of Empowered Lab Communications and founder of Empowered PhXX.

“We’re fortunate to be joined this month by an impressive panel of women business owners who have also served as NAWBO presidents,” says Nancy Sanders, NAWBO Phoenix President. “The national workforce is now about 47.4 percent female. While women in the workforce have come a long way, there is still work to be done.”

The March 9 NAWBO luncheon meeting will be held in Phoenix beginning at 11 a.m. Cost for members is $38, $48 for guests. For information on meeting location and to make a reservation, visit
