WIPP 2019 Year In Review

WIPP 2019 Year In Review

Over the last year, I have been heartened and encouraged by our flourishing WIPP community. Our members, new and established, are bringing renewed passion and dedication to our mission.


Across the nation, we are expanding our corporate partners, government agency partners, and strategic organizational partners to reach new audiences and grow our resources.


I'm thrilled to release our today. Please join Team WIPP and our WIPP Board of Director's Chair Angela Dingle today during our Monthly Member Meeting.


As we move forward to our 20th anniversary in 2021, we are focused on sustaining the momentum you'll see in the report: leveraging our relevancy in the political environment and further evolving our member experience.


Thank you to our team, our Board of Directors, and especially all our members and partners for everything you do. I look forward to a great year with all of you!

Resolutions from

WIPP’s Advocacy Team

Elizabeth Sullivan WIPP Advocacy Team

It has been two weeks since New Year's Day and you’re not alone if you have broken most or all of your New Year's resolutions. While we put our personal resolutions aside, when it comes to advocacy, our team has made some we are committed to keeping.


1. Untangle the web of new federal cybersecurity requirements for WOSBs.

2. Urge the Senate to pass the SBA Reauthorization bill.

3. Celebrate and build upon our FY2020 NDAA wins.

4. Support Congressional women.


No doubt, other policy priorities will arise as the year moves forward. Although there are many political pressures that threaten to derail our efforts, we remain committed to the bipartisan mission of empowering women entrepreneurs. Let’s get to work.
