Empowered Women Empowering Women

NAWBO Iowa’s mission is to propel women entrepreneurs into economic, social and political spheres of power statewide by: strengthening the wealth-creating capacity of our members and promoting economic development within the entrepreneurial community, creating innovative and effective change in the business culture, building strategic alliances, coalitions and affiliations, and transforming public policy and influencing opinion makers.

NAWBO Iowa believes that providing quality programming is an essential part of our mission. Our goal is to present topics that appeal to current members as well as to Women Business Owners (WBO) in our communities in effort to attract new members.   


NAWBO Iowa understands Women Business Owners have many unique and specific needs. 

In order to better address those needs, we conducted a survey of our members to learn of the pressing issues and challenges they face.

As a result, the following topics will be our TOP programming priority:

  • Employee: Staffing, Recruiting, Retention, Reviews, Delegation, Motivation, Engagement, HR and Contract Employees
  • Business Development: Prospecting, Increasing Sales, Sales Skills, Retention, Selling to Younger Audiences, Business Growth, Key Relationships, Advocates, and Overcoming Rejection
  • Time Management: Prioritizing, Organizing, Focus, Efficiency Tools, Capacity, Balance
  • Marketing: Strategies, Branding, Digital & Social Media, Relationship Based Selling
  • Business Acumen: Financing & Accounting, Budgeting, Profit Margins, Cash Flow, Securing Capital, Accurate Pricing and Pricing Confidence, Stages of a Business
  • Other Topics: New Trends and Tips, Regulation and Reform, What Should I Know that I Don’t
  • Leadership: Being Inspired, Demonstrating Confidence
