About Us

New York Women’s Chamber of Commerce

(The Women’s Chamber, NYWCC)

The New York Women’s Chamber of Commerce is a 501(c)(3) membership organization dedicated to economically empowering women, by assisting them start and grow sustainable and successful businesses, micro-enterprises and self-employed ventures that allows them to build financial security for themselves, their families and their communities.

The Women’s Chamber is an advocate of gender parity and economic justice and actively works in partnership with the City and State to level the playing field by assisting with the creation of equal and fair business opportunities and by fostering an environment that nurtures the financial growth of women & minority entrepreneurs in New York.

Investing in women’s economic empowerment sets a direct path towards gender equality, poverty eradication and inclusive economic growth. We at the NY Women’s Chamber of Commerce believe that access to equal employment and business opportunities are key elements to ending many of the social and economic challenges women still face today.

Since 2002, the Women’s Chamber has been creating and implementing initiatives to help economically disadvantaged women in New York City lift themselves from poverty and achieve economic freedom. These initiatives provide women with the education, tools, resources and the ongoing support necessary for them to start, manage, and grow their business, obtain job security, manage their finances and build assets.
