Women Entrepreneurs: the Northern Perspective
Read time : 10 mins Added: 27/05/2022
The UK Government has made clear its desire to reduce economic inequalities across regions and communities.
We have a similar, long-standing commitment and we are dedicated to breaking down barriers to societal and community prosperity and building an inclusive society.
We have a programme of work dedicated to boosting productivity, jobs and skills to help small businesses prosper, specifically targeting the North West, North East, and Yorkshire and The Humber. More than a third of the women-led businesses we spoke to told us that traditional attitudes towards gender roles act as a barrier rather than a springboard for women in business, and we want to change that.
Across the North there are some exceptional women, leading businesses, driving growth and creating exciting opportunities for the region.
