WOMEN IMPACTING PUBLIC POLICY RECEIVES COVETED WOMEN’S BUSINESS ENTERPRISE HALL OF FAME AWARD

WASHINGTON, D.C. (November 18, 2013) —Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP), the nation’s largest nonpartisan women’s business group representing over 4.7 million American women entrepreneurs, has been selected as a distinguished recipient of the 2013 Women’s Business Enterprise Hall of Fame award by the American Institute of Diversity and Commerce. This national award honors individuals, companies, and organizations, like WIPP, that have demonstrated exemplary leadership and support in the success of women’s business enterprise initiatives.

For over 12 years WIPP’s focus has been on bringing issues that directly affect women business owners to the U.S. Congress, the White House, federal and state agencies in order to push for legislation that beneficially impacts business health and growth. WIPP’s tenacious efforts on Capitol Hill are unmatched by any other organization, representing women business owners and offer an extensive array of quality educational resources to help women-owned businesses excel economically. 

This expansive collection of educational programming created and delivered by WIPP to business women across the world includes: WIPP’s Economic Blueprint, Give Me 5, ChallengeHER,Women Accessing Capitol, Entrepreneurs, Energy, and Environment,Women and Technology Today and Export Now. "WIPP has amassed a stellar record as an outstanding advocate in the women’s business enterprise community and is truly deserving of this recognition for its support of and commitment to fostering the growth of women’s leadership and accomplishment,”acknowledged the WBEHF.

"We are so proud to be a recipient of the 2013 Women’s Business Enterprise Hall of Fame Award,” said Barbara Kasoff, WIPP president. "We know all too well that our work is not nearly done; and we know all too well that while women are key drivers of economic growth, we continue to face barriers to economic participation and that gap undermines global economic expansion, an important factor in our growth. We are creating partnerships, we are energizing our leaders and we are building a new, more inclusive and robust role for women in our nation. This recognition is a wonderful tribute to the women’s business community."

Accepting the award on WIPP’s behalf will be Cary Broussard, Owner, Broussard Global, a Dallas-based company, and WIPP National Partner and a Director in the WIPP Education Foundation. "It is my honor to represent WIPP, an organization whose growth from a few thousand women to representing millions of women owned businesses has made a difference in the unification and influence of women in the economy,” Cary stated.

The 2013 WBE Hall of Fame awards will be presented Thursday, December 5, 2013 at the Four Seasons Resort – Dallas at Las Colinas, 4150 North MacArthur Boulevard, Irving, Texas 75038. The evening will begin with a welcome reception at 5:30 PM followed by the awards program at 6:15 PM.
