The Center for Women’s Business Research, the National Women’s Business Council and Walmart are sponsoring a research study and your participation is crucial to its success. Just five minutes of your time will help support the growth of businesses like yours.
This study will measure the economic impact of women-owned firms in the United States. This is the first time that this type of analysis has been undertaken for women-owned businesses nationwide.

The deadline for participation is Friday, June 19. Help shape the future!
