[ONLINE] - Supporting Women-Owned Businesses During the COVID-19 Era


New America CA and the San Francisco Department on the Status of Women have partnered to host a live streamed town hall to discuss how we can support women business owners during and after the COVID-19 crisis.

While all businesses have been impacted by shelter in place, women-owned businesses, especially small businesses or businesses owned by women of color, have been hit especially hard. We’ll be hosting a conversation with local government officials, women business owners, and entrepreneurship experts to explore how we can address these inequities and imagine a more equal future. 

Join us on Tuesday, June 16th at 5:00 PM PDT for this conversation with local and statewide experts to discuss COVID-19’s impact on women small businesses owners and how you can help.  

Registration is free and open to all.
