She Leads; Canada Prospers: The Importance of Women’s Entrepreneurship for Economic Recovery
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 us and the Ontario Chamber of Commerce for the launch of the first-ever State of Women’s Entrepreneurship in Canada Report and an online lunch hour discussion with incredible speakers and critical discussions about how women’s entrepreneurship is critical to a stronger economic recovery in Canada.
