NAWBO Advocacy Partners provide NAWBO with more opportunity to speak to decision makers on behalf of our members and women business owners in general on issues that are most important to women entrepreneurs today. These issues include health care, procurement opportunities, access to capital, fair and equitable tax treatment for small businesses and more. For details on NAWBO’s public policy platform and legislative highlights—and to get involved to make sure your voice is heard—please visit our site’s Legislative Action Center.
Strategic Counsel's unique interdisciplinary approach in the areas of law, advocacy and communications is the result of the two firms that joined forces in 2005 to form it—California’s leading woman-owned law firm known for its strengths in strategic policy development with an emphasis on corporate, administrative and environmental law, and a prominent Sacramento-based, full-service governmental advocacy and public affairs company. Today, Strategic Counsel’s law and consulting practices work closely together on a national platform, to advise and consult with organizations to realize the best solutions to the unique challenges they face—turning each challenge into an opportunity for success. This runs the gamut from strategic planning and growth strategy, to brand management and marketing and communications, to policy impact analysis and legislative action planning and implementation. It’s a powerful business combination that adds up to commanding results.
The Council on Women and Girls
The White House Council on Women and Girls will ensure that agencies across the federal government, not just a few offices, take into account the particular needs and concerns of women and girls. The Council will begin its work by asking each agency to analyze their current status and ensure that they are focused internally and externally on women.
Coalition for Affordable Health Coverage
NAWBO is a member of the Coalition for Affordable Health Coverage. The Coalition supports and advocates for “market-oriented approaches and tax incentives or other subsidies to promote affordable health coverage for all, including the uninsured.” Tax parity for the treatment of health expenses for individuals and the self-employed is also a focus of the Coalition.
