WE ARE AN ALLIANCE.
WE ARE COLLABORATORS.
WE ARE A WOMEN'S BUSINESS
We Will Not Rest Until There Is Equal Position, Pay, And Power For All Business Women
The Women Business Collaborative is an alliance of business women’s organizations working together to achieve equal position, pay and power for all women in business. We are a social movement consisting of millions of diverse, professional women and men, business organizations, public and private companies and the media leveraging the power of collaboration to accelerate change.
To propel women forward, WBC has united more than 43+ leading women’s organizations, activating our vast alliance to attain immediate and long-term results around nine essential action initiatives – more women as CEOs, in the C-Suite and on Boards; a demand for gender pay and parity; increasing capital for women entrepreneurs; driving more women as controllers of capital allocation; parity for women in underrepresented business sectors such as technology; and leveraging learning and development to drive pipeline promotions. Interwoven across every initiative is our call for inclusivity, diversity and equality for all women, including women of color, the LGBTQIA community and other disenfranchised women.
Our movement and network, spearheaded by our Partners, Advisory and Leadership Councils, reaches tens of thousands of business leaders across the United States and globally. WBC is committed to diversity – our Councils and Board of Directors include more than 30 percent people of color.
The power of combining the collaborative approach with our movement is already creating momentum and accelerating the pace of change for business women.
THE ADVISORY COUNCIL is a select group of senior women and men Executives, Board Members, Corporations, Thought-Leaders and Innovators, who, at the invitation of WBC Leadership, join their fellow change leaders in support of the WBC Mission.
