"The program enabled and empowered me. I was introduced to local women who had started their own business, faced similar challenges, and prevailed. I was moved and inspired through their stories"
Our instructor provided us with the resources and confidence to take our business to the next level. We attended networking events, watched inspiring films and attended a panel discussion. My favourite part was connecting with my fellow Enterprising Women participants.
