What is American Business Women’s Day?
Every year on September 22, the United States celebrates American Business Women’s Day. The first annual event was held on September 22, 1982 and was officially recognized by congressional proclamation in 1983 and 1986.
American Business Women’s Day is a day set aside to honor and reflect upon the contributions and accomplishments of the millions of women in the work force and the millions of women business owners in the U.S.
The organization is responsible for starting this national day of recognition for business women is the American Business Women’s Association, a professional network for women in business and women business owners.
Who Is The American Business Women’s Association?
The American Business Women’s Association (ABWA) was founded on September 22, 1949 “to bring together businesswomen of diverse occupations and to provide opportunities for them to help themselves and others grow personally and professionally through leadership; education, networking support and national recognition.”
Today, the ABWA offers a wide variety of membership based resources and networking opportunities for business women, female entrepreneurs, and for women who work from home.
The ABWA offers local chapters in some areas of the U.S., but local membership is not required to become a member of the ABWA.
Members can take advantage of ABWA’s online training programs and earn business certificates. The ABWA celebrates women on National American Business Women’s Day, as well as through awards and other forms of recognition.
