This project aims to provide women entrepreneurs in Québec and Colombia with the necessary training to develop their entrepreneurship ventures and counteract the problems related to gendered discrimination and inequality in the current COVID-19 pandemic context. In addition, with the support of Québecois and Colombian students, your participation will enable the development of a complementary research project aimed at analysing and understanding the realities of female entrepreneurs from both countries. The training and research findings will serve to inform the redaction of a final policy brief containing recommendations targeted at governments, ministries and businesses. Finally, the policy brief will be shared during our closing event, on November 19, 2021, in addition to being disseminated throughout our awareness-raising campaign that will close on December 31, 2021.
