WiRE Director Polly Gibb was invited to meet with Lorely Burt MP Ambassador for Women in Enterprise last year. Polly voiced the concerns and outlined the business needs of rural and micro business-women.
The resulting report “Inclusive support for women in enterprise: the Burt report” which considers how government can increase opportunities for women in business is launched today.
It makes a number of recommendations aimed at boosting the number of female entrepreneurs, creating jobs and promoting a stronger, fairer economy.
