Members of WIPP’s Board of Directors will serve 3-year terms. As board members, they will serve as a governance board and provide strategic counsel on strengthening the impact of women business owners at the federal legislative and executive levels, bringing their unique perspective on top economic growth concerns to our nation’s political leaders, and activating this fast growing demographic in the electoral process.
Since its founding in 2001, WIPP members have testified at numerous Congressional committee hearings on issues that affect the growth of women-owned businesses, particularly access to capital, tax reform, affordable healthcare and federal contracting opportunities. Also, WIPP members frequently participate in roundtable discussions conducted by the Administration on the economic impact of public policies on business.
“Now that women have ownership in nearly half of all private companies and are growing faster than any other business demographic, the impact of women entrepreneurs on the political landscape is formidable. With involved business owners like Jennifer on our board, WIPP is leading the way to ensure women’s voices are heard in the halls of Congress, The White House and federal agencies," said Kasoff.
