Event description

Description

It's time to cultivate inclusive innovation. Good data about women's entrepreneurship helps us understand the base conditions, assets, and the size of the opportunities that Canadian women are navigating.

Currently, however, there's a data deficit when it comes to women's entrepreneurship and economic potential.

The insights that new, shared data can provide can propel us forward as a community.

Join SheEO Founder Vicki Saunders, SheEO Venture and Eve Medical Founder Jessica Ching, Dr. Wendy Cukier, professor of Entrepreneurship and Strategy, founder and academic director of Ryerson’s Diversity Institute, home to the newly formed Women Entrepreneurship Knowledge Hub (WEKH), and special guest the Honourable Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business and Export Promotion, for a morning discussion about Canada's female data deficit and the opportunity to drive inclusive innovation with new research, insights, interventions and ecosystems.

PLUS: There will be a special announcement from the Honourable Mary Ng.
