Lean Madesin Phillips, president of the National Federation of Business and Professional Women’s Clubs (NFBPWC), launched the first National Business Women’s Week in 1928. It wasn’t until 1938 that the week was officially recognized and celebrated every year since.

Since its creation in 1928, the NBWW has been sponsored by Business and Professional Women to recognize and honor the achievements of working women throughout history. BPW members and BPW Foundation call attention to the leadership of working women and local women entrepreneurs, facilitate discussions on the needs of working women, share information about successful workplace policies and raise awareness of resources available for women in their communities. NBWW is celebrated by BPW Local Organizations and their local communities across the country.

The National Business Women’s Week is a salute to the achievements of all working women.
