Calling all Women in Business!

Join us as we celebrate Women's History month with a training on how Ascent, a free digital e-learning platform, can help women entrepreneurs grow and expand their businesses.

We recognize the value that women entrepreneurs present to our great, growing economy. Women entrepreneurs challenge the discrimination that women face in the labor force every day by driving innovation and technology and placing small business on a global competitive playing field.

Ascent is a joint initiative between the White House, the SBA, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Women’s Bureau and the U.S. Department of the Treasury.

Designed to support women entrepreneurs looking to remain resilient in their operations, Ascent is packed with content and resources from each agency and backed by academic research.

Ascent has valuable content such as tips on preparing and recovering from disasters, strategic marketing and business financial strategy development.
