Natalie M. Cofield


The Office of Women's Business Ownership is proud to join with each of you in celebration of International Women's Day. A key focus of International Women's Day is exploring women and the economy, what we can do to continue to make economic equity a reality for working and enterprising women.

At the Office of Women's Business Ownership, we work daily to ensure that resources are made available to our Women's Business Centers and that we continue to serve as a voice for women entrepreneurs across the nation.

Please check out this video of my brief remarks celebrating Women's History Month and International Women's Day. We also invite you to join us on March 29th and 30th for our inaugural Women in Business Summit celebrating the achievements of women entrepreneurs throughout the US.
