Women-owned businesses are the fastest-growing segment of the U.S. economy, and supporting a woman-owned business is one of the most sustainable ways to honor the contributions of women throughout history. This Women’s History Month, we are building out a list of local women-owned businesses in Columbus to make this endeavor easy. Click on a category below to get started, and if you know of a business that should be included, please email us!

For Women's History Month this March, we recognize and celebrate the amazing things women have accomplished and contributed to society. This is also a great time to look back and intentionally pinpoint the women who forged a path for others. In Columbus, we’re proud of the women who, in their own unique ways, work to do just that: pave the way for those who will later walk in their footsteps. From the women who sit on the Columbus Women’s Commission to those who run incredible businesses, from those who lead community-changing non-profits to those who take courageous small steps each and every day, women are making important steps in Columbus.

This month, we also recognize Title IX, legislation banning gender-based discrimination in education and therefore, in athletics. This monumental achievement for women is highlighted by the thrilling women’s sporting events held in Columbus lately, like the NCAA Women’s Volleyball Championship.

Check out the Columbus Women’s Commission to see just a few amazing women in our community, and review our list of women-owned businesses below for a small taste of the places you can find awesome women in the 614.
