A DEDICATED new online hub has been launched to coincide with the release of a detailed report about the challenges faced by women in business and leadership in Lancashire.
The Women in Enterprise Hub has been funded and launched by Boost; Lancashire’s Business Growth Hub.
It provides details of current female business support and events services as well as showcasing inspirational women in the county through Q&A interviews.
It has been launched in response to the Growing Women, Growing Lancashire report.
A Women in Enterprise steering group has also been established to work alongside the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership and create a long-term strategy to grow the number of women in business and leadership in the county.
Wendy Bowers, co-author of the report and founder of the business coaching and leadership organisation Role said: “There is no national strategy to support women in leadership and business and Lancashire’s response to the recommendations in the report has been swift and impressive.
“The Boost online hub is the third recommendation in the report and will be an online space where organisations can celebrate women’s success stories and women can find support, events and more which are designed at times to suit women and in ways that support women.”
