Workforce WindsorEssex has launched a new survey for women entrepreneurs to support their annual RISE Needs Assessment report. This report will outline recommendations and actions based on these survey results. To inform the annual report, women entrepreneurs can share their experiences with local programming for business owners, what government supports they use or need, and how service providers can better support female founders in Windsor-Essex. Those that participate in the survey will be entered for a chance to win prizes from local female-owned businesses.
March 8 is International Women’s Day! Nominate a female entrepreneur or woman working in STEM who deserves recognition for her tireless work improving, promoting and strengthening the Windsor-Essex region. Successful nominees will be recognized by RISE Windsor-Essex in a special way.
Join us in celebrating local women this International Women’s Day!
