Women's Business Development Council

WBDC’s 7th Annual Women-Owned Business Day

Wednesday, April 1, 2020
9:00AM – 2:00PM

The 7th Annual WBDC Women-Owned Business Day promises to be the most exciting yet. We will examine the importance of being civically engaged, with particular attention paid to Connecticut’s Paid Family and Medical Leave Act and how it affects you and your business. This landmark legislation was impacted by activists with fierce opinions on both sides of the argument, and ultimately would not have passed were it not for the grass roots efforts of supporters who made their voices heard throughout Hartford.

As the leaders of the women’s suffrage movement understood so many decades ago, we all have within us the power to influence the laws that affect our daily lives and the future of our businesses. We just need to put that power to use!
