NWBC in Support of Women-owned Retail Label


A new development to advance women business owners was unveiled during this year’s Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) conference. This groundbreaking initiative will highlight products made by women-owned companies and more importantly alert shopping consumers with a visible women-owned logo marked on product packaging. The initiative and logo were created out of a WBENC, WEConnect International and Walmart collaboration. The National Women’s Business Council released the following statement in support of the new women-owned retail logo:


"This is a notable moment in the women’s business community and for women entrepreneurs in particular. We are in a new market environment where consumers are more conscious of their buying power and we believe that both women and men consumers will appreciate the opportunity to support high quality women-owned suppliers. The stamp's distinction will raise the level of visibility for products made by women entrepreneurs and will inevitably reap significant economic gains for participating vendors. This is an important development and we look forward to seeing more retailers adopt similar strategies, says NWBC Chair Carla Harris.”

 

The NWBC commends the WBENC, WEConnect International, and Walmart collaboration. To hear more on the topic of economic gains for women business owners, please contact Krystal.Glass@nwbc.gov
