WNY Woman-Owned Business Directory launched
Have you ever wondered what the local landscape looks like, in terms of the number of WNY women-owned businesses in our community? In recent years, more and more women-owned businesses have been established, helping to create a more diverse economy in the region.
When the pandemic hit, the WNY Women’s Foundation sought to find a way to ensure that these female entrepreneurs would not be as at risk, which is why the organization created a directory called the WNY Women-Owned Business Directory. The Foundation believed that this new repertoire would benefit women who “continue to be disproportionately affected by the pandemic”.
To date, more than 230 local women-owned businesses are listed in the Participatory Business Directory, which will be officially launched later this week. At this point the website is live, for anyone who wants to get a preview (or add their business) before the official launch.
All companies currently listed are offering services during the pandemic.
