Womanhood, Motherhood, and Entrepreneurship

Let’s face it. The world would be a better place if more women and mothers were able to launch and grow their businesses. If we trust the birth and mothering of human life with women, we should trust them with creating and nurturing a business to succeed. Gender equality is a hot topic, but what does it really mean in the world of entrepreneurship? What’s at stake if we don’t address the biases women face, from fundraising (receiving more advice than funds) to balancing or choosing between motherhood and business aspirations? Through real life accounts of gender bias (magnified for mothers and women of color), this innovating panel paints womanhood and motherhood not as a hindrance to entrepreneurship, but as essential to creating a healthier, wealthier, and more equitable world.

  1. Getting real with the explicit bias women entrepreneurs face. What price is the world paying for the lack of women and mothers leading businesses?
  2. Mothers are advantageous to entrepreneurship. How can “Motherhood 101” help nurture businesses to grow up big, compassionate, and strong?
  3. Supporting women entrepreneurs creates healthier and happier families and communities. How can women and men do their part to level the playing field?
