The rate at which women grow and scale their business is affected by socioeconomic conditions, as well as additional responsibilities such as jobs, family, school and community commitments.

Women of color on the West Side of Greater Chicagoland areas are invited to join this webinar discussion with West Side Forward and Small Business Majority on how to address these challenges through leadership preparation, business support and efforts to build resilience in order to expand income opportunities that can close the gender wealth gap. Specific topics that will be discussed include:

  • Leadership development for women 
  • Systems and policies to support women of color entrepreneurs 
  • No-cost and culturally relevant business development resources and support
  • No-cost community resources to provide trauma-informed support and services
