Women are starting small businesses at a higher rate than men and earn business revenues above the national average. Join Geri Aglipay, Small Business Majority National Women's Entrepreneurship Manager, and Roxanne Charles, Bethel New Life Senior Director of Economic Development Programs, for a women’s roundtable discussion and presentation on policies that impact the economic security of women small business owners, especially women of color.

Women entrepreneurs’ engagement on policy issues informs decisionmakers and activates change that supports economic security for their businesses, their employees, their families and their local communities. This women-only roundtable will focus on topics and resources such as healthcare, fair lending, paid family and medical leave, affordable childcare and student debt.
