Program: Panel discussion with 3 Women Business Owners

On paper, things have never looked better for women entrepreneurs. As of 2017, more than 11 million U.S. businesses were owned by women, employing nearly 9 million people and generating $1.7 trillion in sales, according to the National Association of Women Business Owners.
But these numbers only tell part of the story. Women-owned businesses are still in the minority, and the hurdles faced by women who have embraced entrepreneurship are vast and often very different from those experienced by their male counterparts. September’s program will shed light on some of these disparities and how we can lift up women business owners.
