The Vital Role of Women Business Owners in the Small Business Economy
Featuring Alyssa Harvey Dawson, Chief Legal Officer, and Luke Pardue, Economist of Gusto
Gusto and NAWBO partnered up to survey women business owners and uncovered the importance of their inclusion in the economic recovery. Supporting these women, these breadwinners, means supporting not only the workers they employ, but also the families they provide for—and is particularly crucial to averting long-term devastation that will be felt among this country’s children.
Every Wednesday at 2 p.m. PT/4 p.m. CT/5 p.m. ET
Join us on Zoom to meet other women business owners across the nation! We’ll connect, share best practices and support one another in an interactive format. This is a safe space to share since the calls are not recorded. Please introduce yourself as you participate. Register to join us! (We welcome non-member guests to attend up to two times and then ask that you decide if NAWBO is the right community for you. We will have a 10-minute huddle after each Community Connects to answer any questions you may have about NAWBO membership.)
Still in May
