Washington, D.C.Women business leaders from across the country, including Mickey Judkins, CEO, Details, met with Maria Contreras-Sweet, U.S. Small Business Administration Administrator; Carla Harris, National Women’s Business Council Chair; Megan Smith, U.S. Chief Technology Officer; and other senior Administration officials at the White House on Monday to discuss resources for women in business and the importance of women business leaders in advocating for broad economic policies ranging from intellectual property to trade to immigration.

At the meeting, organized by the White House, the National Women’s Business Council and Business Forward, the discussion focused on ways for improving access to capital.

Participants chose between three breakout discussions on technology, access to capital, and federal resources. A conversation with panelists from the public and private sectors also examined various ways that Washington matters to women in business.
