NFBPWC advocates to maintain and achieve long-lasting changes for working women, using our program-based campaigns and working in partnership with like-minded organizations to influence policy and practice.


Our Priorities AT NFBPWC

  • Access to equal opportunities in the workplace and corporate boards
  • Access to women business enterprise procurement process
  • Access to quality, affordable dependent care (child, elderly or disabled)
  • Access to funding and capital for entrepreneurial activity
  • Access to affordable and attainable housing

  

Health Equity and Justice

  • Access to affordable care
  • Reproductive choice
  • Paid sick leave
  • Family and medical leave
  • Equal research funding for women’s and girl’s health issues
