Public Policy
Doing Well & Doing Good

NAWBO members believe business should be a force for good in New Mexico. We, as women business owners, invest in and support our communities in a variety of ways. We know the sustainability of serving customers and retaining employees supports philanthropic, community-based, and public policy efforts. The myriad benefits of engaging in these endeavors help make our state a better place to live, work, and grow a business.

Diversity & Inclusion

NAWBO New Mexico members believe in strengthening New Mexico's long-term economic vitality; a wide diversity of perspectives must contribute to the public policy dialogue. We actively support equity, diversity, and inclusion in the workplace. Our experiences and memories as employees strongly influence our perspectives on furthering a broadly viable environment.

Costs & Complexity

NAWBO members know that there are costs and regulatory implications on business that must be given every consideration in public policy development. We ask that tax policies contemplate holistically and awareness that most small businesses are sole proprietors and LLCs. We respect the need for regulations to serve as guardrails that are objective, impartial, and consistent, then developed with clear meaning and implemented through fair-minded compliance.

Workforce & Infrastructure

NAWBO members believe that economic development and business thrives where the workforce is dynamic and infrastructure is well resourced. We want to strengthen the state's educational system as it is the key to unlocking workers' potential. Focusing on improving access to high quality, affordable early education, building a robust STEM pipeline, and aligning workforce training resources to meet employers' needs are prerequisites. We understand that investment in foundational resources, including broadband and transportation solutions, directly support economic development and quality of life goals.
