Northwest Ohio Business Mentoring
As stated in the 2019 State of Women-Owned Business Report, from geography and gender to race and ethnicity, diversity in its many forms drives innovation. Because of women’s different perspectives, skills, and experiences, they solve problems in new and innovative ways. And, as it turns out, women are often more likely than business owners in general to see a need in the market and to start a company to fill it. This should bode well for the U.S. economy, but women face more obstacles than entrepreneurs in general when starting and growing their businesses. Eliminating barriers that thwart the success of women-owned businesses is an economic imperative that can spur innovation and improve productivity, which will create jobs, build wealth, and grow the economy.
Program: Through collaborative efforts, partnering with Northwest Ohio Hispanic (NOHCC) and Toledo African American Chamber of Commerce, together with Women of Toledo, we will introduce the first Northwest Ohio Mentoring Program. We value diversity in the following areas: Business, age, ethnicity, gender, religion, ability, experience, class, size, and more to find ways to strengthen the entire community. Thus, helping to create an environment where businesses of our communities can begin to experience the generational success that leads to generational wealth-building opportunities for the entrepreneur, their families, and the communities that they are from.
