York plans further event to promote female entrepreneurs

City of York Council is to host another joint event with NatWest to help support female entrepreneurs and businesses leaders in the city.

The council is again partnering with NatWest to host ‘ A Women in Business’ networking event to promote female entrepreneurship and amplify the support available for female business owners in York.

The event will be held on Thursday 7 July from 11am to 2pm in the Wonderbar at Impossible York, 3 St. Helen’s Square. It aims to inspire and empower women to start, grow or upscale their business.

The headline speaker for this event will be Emma Godivala, Director of York Gin Ltd. She will be talking about ‘Trying to do the right thing’, and will share her experience of growing a business while looking after the products, people and the planet.

Alongside hearing the personal story of an inspirational business leader, participants will learn what business support York businesses can access from City of York Council, NatWest, Ad:venture and Enterprise Made Simple. The talks will be followed by a Q&A session and speed networking.

The networking event welcomes women business owners, senior managers and women thinking about starting a business in York. Interested participants can find more information about the event and register for a free place online.

Rachel Dixon, Local Enterprise Manager, NatWest, said: The last few years have been incredibly challenging for many businesses, and we know that female led businesses often face additional challenges. We want to play our part in helping them succeed by connecting them with support, advice and guidance that can make a huge difference.”
