Women’s Entrepreneurship for Economic Recovery
August 11, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
She Leads… Canada Prospers.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a disproportionate effect on women. Most strikingly observed amongst women from disadvantaged populations, it is also taking a harsh toll on women entrepreneurs. Existing systemic inequalities pre-pandemic have been further exacerbated by recent shut-down measures, resulting in what some economists are calling a “she-cession,” as more women have lost their jobs and fewer women than men are re-gaining employment. What is clear is this: we will not achieve our full economic potential if support for women is not centred in our planning.
Join the Ontario Chamber of Commerce and the Women Entrepreneurship Knowledge Hub (WEKH) for a discussion with incredible speakers and critical discussions about how women’s entrepreneurship and leadership is critical to a stronger economic recovery in Canada.
