PEIBWA is pleased to announce that Rose FitzPatrick has joined our team as the PEI Project Coordinator for the Atlantic Canadian Women’s Growth Partnership Project.
The project is a collaborative partnership between the four Atlantic Provincial Women’s Business Organizations. This project is supported by the Government of Canada through the Women’s Entrepreneurship Strategy (WES) to create a diverse, inclusive economy that will ensure a better quality of life for women entrepreneurs in Canada.
Through a collaborative approach with the other Atlantic provinces, Rose will be working on the following:
- Conducting a jurisdictional scan of PEI’s Women in Business
- Mapping a needs assessment
- Helping to develop and deliver programs to increase the participation of under-represented women and women-owned businesses in Atlantic Canada’s entrepreneurial ecosystem.
This project is in place to increasing the capacity to support women in start-up and growth stages through the sharing of knowledge, networks, resources, research, and programs. More information on this project to come soon!
