Where Are The Women in Startups? Um, Everywhere!

There are thousands of women out there innovating and starting businesses across sectors and thousands more advancing on the horizon. A recent Intuit 2020 report estimates that 47 million more women will enter the workforce or start their own business by 2020 – and that’s in the US alone. So why all the negativity in the media? Every week brings a slightly different take on the where-are-women-in-business article. Some look at venture funding, others look at women's representation in specific sectors, but they all have the same theme - women can't seem to get it together when it comes to business. This core conversation will tackle the issue by highlighting real-world successes and discussing solutions and methods for changing the conversation around women in business and women entrepreneurs.
