The business world is mostly dominated by men, but over the years, countless women entrepreneurs continue to rise above expectations and defy norms. COVID-19 has brought on many challenges for women in general, and women have braved the pandemic with strength and resiliency. Pre COVID-19, the number of women-owned businesses in the U.S. increased by 114% within the last twenty years, of which 70% were started by women of color. The reality is that women are playing an important role in driving economic growth. However, despite women’s massive success, we still face challenges today that most of our male counterparts don’t.
Join us and other women business owners around the State of New Mexico on Friday, November 12, 2021 for a virtual brown bag discussion from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm as we discuss the Challenges Female entrepreneurs Face in Business Today.
