By NAWBOŽ Publications


With 17 years experience as a federal government contractor, NAWBOŽ member and The Management Edge Owner/President Gayle Waldron is familiar with the difficulties and inequities women-owned small businesses still face today. Through her work with NAWBOŽ and Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP), Gayle has been instrumental in helping both the Small Business Administration (SBA) and Congress understand underlying issues and develop strategies to combat these inequities.


After experiencing feelings of frustration and isolation while starting her own company, Gayle gained an interest in tackling the challenges women in business encounter. Gayle became involved in NAWBOŽ, serving as her chapter's public policy chair and a member of the Procurement Task Force. In the latter position, she contributed to the 2006 Task Force Report, which summarized the state of women-owned small businesses (WOSBs) and provided recommendations for reform. She is also on the board of WIPP and served as co-chair of their first Procurement Committee. Altogether, Gayle spent the past 10 years striving to attain government equity in procurement for women business owners.
