Women’s Enterprise Policy Group – Framework of Policy Actions To Build Back Better For Women’s Enterprise
Title: Women's Enterprise Policy Group - Framework of Policy Actions To Build Back Better For Women's Enterprise
Type of Resource: Report
Short Description: We are calling for the Chancellor to bring WEPG to the policy table to shape Covid19 enterprise policy that ‘Builds Back Better’ for women entrepreneurs, for the economy, and for society[ii]. Current evidence indicates that women face a catastrophic future with a tsunami of job losses and business closures unless the chancellor and wider Government develops enterprise policy that serves women. The Women’s Enterprise Policy Group seeks to inform and shape policy that supports women to form thriving businesses. We are conscious that self employment and small business serve different purposes for different people at different stages in life. Developing policy to shape ‘good self employment’ or business ownership for women is complex – involving routes in, up and out - which is why we have called on the Chancellor to bring us to the policy table and to create enterprise policy that is productive and fair for women.
