History of NBWW

National Business Women&s Week: Weebly Women That Rock

During National Business Women's Week, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the formation of the state's first-ever women's committee to address the representation and advancement of women in the financial services industry and to identify the hurdles and obstacles to increasing the number of women in leadership roles, including promoting diverse women.

The concept of National Business Women’s Week® originated with Emma Dot Partridge, Executive Secretary of the National Federation of Business and Professional Women’s Clubs from 1924 to 1927.

The first annual observance of NBWW was held April 15-22, 1928, when National President Lena Madesin Phillips opened the week with a nationally broadcast speech. She stated that the purpose of the week was “to focus public attention upon a better business woman for a better business world.”

In 1938, NBWW was moved to the third full week of October. U.S. President Herbert Hoover was the first president to issue a letter recognizing NBWW and the contributions and achievements of working women. The celebration of National Business Women’s Week® has helped to promote leadership roles for women and to increase opportunities for their advancement professionally and personally.
