Women in Entrepreneurship and Business
Webinar organised by the Gozo Business Chamber, in collaboration with Bank of Valletta.

The role of women entrepreneurs and in business in today’s society is becoming more and more important. Today entrepreneurship is considered as an important tool in “promoting women’s empowerment” (Global Entrepreneurship Monitor 2019/2020 Global Report, p. 13). The Global Entrepreneurship Monitor Report 2019/2020 highlights however how “gender disparities in entrepreneurship continue to deplete the stock of new businesses and reduce economic potential” (p. 17) What are the motivations, expectations and experiences of women in entrepreneurship or business?

On the occasion of the week, during which international women’s day is celebrated, the Gozo Business Chamber, in collaboration with Bank of Valletta, will be organising this webinar which will discuss the experiences of four women, who are entrepreneurs and/or in business, providing useful insights of the difficulties faced, and what it means today to be a woman in their respective role
