The Washington D.C. Women’s Business Center, commonly known as the DC WBC, is a business development center that empowers entrepreneurs to start, grow and develop strong businesses.
Our mission is to create sustainable pathways to wealth building by leveraging entrepreneurship as one mechanism to do so.
We provide access to education, resources, and tools that support business growth and leadership development. At our core, we are driven by the goal of creating economic fairness for all and we do so with a critical lens that operates at the intersection of race and gender.
The DC WBC is powered by the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) and funded in part by the Small Business Administration (SBA). The DC WBC is an advocate for the inclusion and centralization of women and women-owned businesses in all facets of the economy.

The Washington DC Branch of the American Association of University Women branch was recognized as the Association’s first branch in October 25, 1884.The branch immediately became a voice in policy issues that primarily affected women and their children. This is a long and illustrious history and we can be very proud of the contributions of our foremothers. We are proud of the fact that our branch was responsible for racially integrating the AAUW in 1954, thanks to the leadership of Alice Cole and the tireless act of Mary Church Terrell.
