On October 21, 2021 at 8 pm ET | 5pm PT NFBPWC/North Carolina is celebrating our club for National Business Women’s Week (NBWW) with a Happy Hour! Everyone is welcome to attend and bring your success stories and beverage of choice!!
The Objectives of National Business Women’s Week are:
The first observance of NBWW was April 15-22, 1928. This first NBWW began with a nationally broadcast speech by Dr. Lena Madesin Phillips, the president of the National Federation of Business and Professional Women's Clubs (NFBPWC). Phillips stated in her speech NBWW was created "to focus public attention upon a better businesswoman for a better business world."
The concept of National Business Women’s Week originated with Emma Dot Partridge, Executive Secretary of the National Federation of Business and Professional Women’s Clubs from 1924 to 1927.
Since its creation in 1928, the NBWW has been sponsored by Business and Professional Women to recognize and honor the achievements of working women throughout history. BPW members call attention to the leadership of working women and local women entrepreneurs, facilitate discussions on the needs of working women, share information about successful workplace policies and raise awareness of resources available for women in their communities.
NBWW is celebrated by BPW Local Clubs and their local communities across the country. The National Business Women’s Week is a salute to the achievements of all working women. It is celebrated during the last full week in October every year.
The President of the United States customarily opens the week with a message, and many governors and mayors’ issue similar messages.
