Women entrepreneurs play a key role in Canada's economic growth and development; more so than ever before as the country recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 2021 Women Entrepreneurship Conference is a free, month-long event series, presented by the Women Entrepreneurship Knowledge Hub (WEKH) in partnership with Women Enterprise Organizations of Canada (WEOC).
Sessions will bring together leading researchers, policymakers, government representatives, women entrepreneurs and other key ecosystem stakeholders to better understand the challenges that diverse women entrepreneurs face and discuss best practices to advance inclusive innovation as part of pandemic recovery.
Please register for each session individually. Content will be presented in English and French. If you're unable to join us live recordings will be made available.
