ABE women entrepreneurs: join the Commonwealth Women's Entrepreneurship Summit
As the pandemic continues to negatively impact economies around the world, its effects threaten to reverse hard-fought gains in reducing gender inequality made over the last couple of decades. Therefore, equipping women entrepreneurs with the skills and resources they need has never been more critical. It is with this aim that the first Commonwealth Women's Entrepreneurship Summit will be taking place on 19th & 20th May 2021. As so many ABE alumni are also women entrepreneurs we think this is an event well worth sharing.
The summit is free and open to all - join it here it's an opportunity to create a profile and network with other women entrepreneurs.
Summit sessions and activities are designed to be of particular interest to policymakers, entrepreneurship support organisations, and entrepreneurs.
Its objectives are to:
- Create a community by connecting women’s networking and business groups, industry bodies and partner organisations
- Engage in positive action to encourage women to seek innovation funding
- Promote success stories, case studies and role models featuring female innovators
- Eradicate no-go areas for women entrepreneurs
- Promote dynamism, diversity and visibility of female leaders and innovators
- Encourage more girls and women to enter STEAM sectors supporting innovation and entrepreneurship
