But there’s still challenges to be overcome. We want to empower women to confidently take the next step in their working lives, and to feel comfortable juggling the work/life balance. Whether you’re returning to work, planning the next chapter in your career, looking to start a business or considering franchising, we launched Women in Business EXPO with you in mind.”
