New Women's CEO Roundtable Peer Mentorship Program to Launch 2019
The Western Dairyland Women's Business Center recently received $6000 from the Women's Giving Circle to launch a peer mentorship program for women seeking to grow their existing businesses. According to the 2018 State of Women Owned Businesses Report, 4 out of every 10 businesses (40%) in the United States are now women-owned. However, these businesses only employ 8% of the total private sector workforce and contribute just 4.3% of total revenues. In response to this discrepancy, The Western Dairyland Women's Business Center is launching a new program called Women's CEO Roundtables.
