Established on September 22, 1949. The mission of the American Business Women’s Association is to bring together business women of diverse occupations and to provide opportunities for them to help themselves and others grow personally and professionally through leadership, education, networking support and national recognition.

More than 5,000 business/networking meetings are hosted each year in hundreds of cities across the nation. Now a nationally recognized American holiday, the American Business Women's Day (ABW Day) occurs annually on September 22. This holiday was recognized in 1983 and 1986 by Congressional resolution and a proclamation issued by President Ronald Reagan to commemorate the important legacy and contributions of all working women in the workforce.

ABWA’s commitment to women whether they are starting a new business, looking to advance their career or a student. Empowering women through educational scholarships, members give back by funding scholarships through the Stephen Bufton Memorial Educational Fund (SBMEF). Since 1953, the educational fund has awarded more than 17 million dollars in scholarships to over 17,000 women.

The American Business Women's Association is committed to creating accessible, affordable, and innovative learning opportunities that will prepare women to respond to the challenges or opportunities experienced at any given moment in their careers. We welcome learners of all ages, educational backgrounds, and career paths who are motivated to chart their learning journey.
