Supporting Rural Women Entrepreneurs Through COVID-19 & Beyond
July 30, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Just as images of entrepreneurship are strongly associated with men in technology, the focus on entrepreneurship and innovation is very urban-centric and often ignores rural and semi rural areas. Recent data shows that in certain rural regions across Canada, rates of self-employment among women are higher than in the rest of the province. In this webinar we will discuss the particular needs and challenges of rural women entrepreneurs and the programs available to support them throughout COVID-19 and beyond.
