WASHINGTON, D.C.—Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP), the nation’s largest nonpartisan public policy organization that advocates on behalf of women in business, announces its new Executive Advisory Board, the body of senior members who represent the WIPP membership at large to the Board of Directors.
The body of the Board is comprised of 44 members who have distinguished themselves as leaders in business and advocates for the women business community as a whole, including Jennifer Scully, President and CEO of Atlanta based, Clinical Resources LLC. Members of the Board serve as the voice for over half a million women in business and inform the strategic design and direction of the organization.
WIPP uniquely brings policy, education and resources to its members and advises Congress on core economic issues that affect women-owned small businesses. Since its inception in 2001, WIPP’s Government Relations team has guided members to testify before many Congressional committee hearings on critical economic issues. Most recently, WIPP was instrumental in designing its award-winning Give Me 5 educational program for the SBA’s Women Business Centers, to help them provide programming to increase access to federal contracts for women business owners substantially underrepresented in their industry.
