40th Anniversary Celebration

Our Greater Raleigh chapter was founded in 1978, when woman business owner Mary Diener advertised in The Raleigh Times about a new networking opportunity for women business owners in the RTP. 

NAWBO Greater Raleigh in the Raleigh Times

40 years later, our chapter has a lot to celebrate: four decades of business growth, community, mentoring, and political advocacy.


NC Women Business Owners Hall of Fame

We're also celebrating the launch of the NC Women Business Owners Hall of Fame, a state-wide initiative to honor women who have had a meaningful impact on the economic development of North Carolina women business owners.  

11 women from across the state of NC will be inducted into the NC Women Business Owners Hall of Fame at this event. The 2018 inaugural class of women were selected from over 50 amazing nominees, by a selection committee made up of representatives from NAWBO-Greater Raleigh, NAWBO-Charlotte, WBON-Cary, the Women's Business Center of NC, NFIB, COIN, Bank of America, and the SBA. 

Join us, and help celebrate the recognition of the first inductee class of the NC Women Business Owners Hall of Fame!
