National Association of Women Business Owners Joins Vision 2020 as National Ally

The National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) is proud to announce it has joined Vision 2020 as a National Ally.

Vision 2020 is a coalition of individuals and organizations united in the commitment to achieve economic, political and social equality for women and girls by the year 2020, the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that granted women the right to vote.

"As we prepare to celebrate the 40th anniversary of NAWBO in 2015, the timing is perfect to begin this positive collaboration. The Vision 2020 mission is one near and dear to our hearts at NAWBO. We look forward to celebrating many successes in the next several years as we countdown to this historic anniversary of women’s right to vote together with Vision 2020 and our fellow National Allies,” said Darla Beggs, NAWBO national board chair. “We are pleased to join the Vision 2020 efforts as a National Ally and look forward to pursing our goal of offering training and education to our members about government and public policy in the hope that they will pursue public office or public policy efforts themselves.”

Vision 2020 has more than 130 delegates across the nation working on local and regional initiatives. Vision 2020 also partners with more than 80 national allies representing more than 20 million members.

"We are thrilled to have NAWBO join as a National Ally and are excited to work with NAWBO members across the country,” said Lynn Yeakel, founder and co-chair of Vision 2020. “NAWBO members have a lot to offer, and we look forward to partnering with them as they harness their voices and their ideas to better the world for all women."

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
