The Women’s Business Council, an independently led, government-backed body publishes a Progress Report annually, to account for business activity. The Council’s latest Progress Report was published in October 2016, and set out the Council’s current priorities for 2016-17.


The Progress Report due for publication in July 2017, will set out the Council’s priorities for 2017-18.

The Council does not directly employ any staff. The secretariat for the Council is based in the Government Equalities Office, which has provided two full-time equivalent posts to support the Council since its creation in 2012.
