Welcome to the WIPP Political Action Committee (PAC), the voice of women business owners in the Nation’s Capital. Newly formed in 2012, WIPP PAC will promote the election of national candidates across the United States who are dedicated to assisting women business owners achieve success. We want to make sure that the candidates we support understand and support the women business owners’ legislative agenda which is laid out in WIPP’s Economic Blueprint.
WIPP PAC is particularly interested in supporting women running for Congress who share our economic agenda and our passion for pragmatic solutions to economic problems in a fiercely partisan Congress. Currently, only 17 Senators are women and only 73 women serve in the House of Representatives. Because we are proudly nonpartisan, you can be assured that the money you contribute to WIPP PAC will support federal candidates in both parties who support our agenda. Contributing to WIPP PAC is an investment in your business. It is your insurance against government policies and regulations that hamper your growth rather than assisting in your growth.
Supporting WIPP PAC will strengthen the already powerful voice women business owners have in Washington. Now it is time to change the conversation in Washington. By contributing to WIPP PAC, you are supporting candidates who are focused on rebuilding the economy by supporting women owned businesses. WIPP PAC contributions are limited to WIPP members. Join us – your contribution will make a difference.

America Turns the Page: Historic Number of Women in the 113th Congress

On November 2nd, WIPP PAC hosted a call by the Romney campaign, focusing on women-owned business issues. The speaker, Jonathan Burks, Deputy Policy Director for the campaign, was introduced by Cherylyn LeBon who is an advisor to the campaign on women's issues. Jonathan outlined Governor Romney's five point plan to strengthen the economy and answered questions on the campaign's view on healthcare, access to capital, federal procurement and the importance of bipartisanship. We greatly appreciate their participation and willingness to engage women business owners.
We also asked the Obama campaign to participate in a call, but Hurricane Sandy interfered. WIPP remains dedicated to its bipartisan mission and will work with whomever wins the election to promote the women business owners' agenda.
