Today is March 19 and the world looks very different than it did a few weeks ago when I boarded a plane from Winnipeg to Ottawa.
On March 9 and 10 I was joined by members of the WEOC Board in the nation's capital for a series of crucial conversations with government ministers and other leaders. We spoke about the necessity of supporting women entrepreneurs and ways in which we could collaborate moving forward.
Today, as we digest evolving messages about government support packages, supply chain changes and travel restrictions, we continue to look for ways to support women entrepreneurs.
Over the next few weeks our focus will be on providing up to date information and expert insights related to the changing face of business in Canada. I encourage you to reach out if you have specific questions and to keep checking our website and social media channels for new content.
Finally, please remember to take care of yourselves. Find time for a laugh, a conversation with a friend, a walk outside, some quiet meditation, or anything else that stems the anxiety that comes from uncertainty and change. Remember that you are connected to a large, wonderful community of women.
Until next time,
Alison Kirkland, CEO
