Sarah Crawley, CEO of iSE CIC, said, ‘This is a huge benefit to women across Birmingham who have the talent and capacity but currently lack the business skills to start their own enterprises, within their own communities. Just today, the British Council has published a report, The Role of Social Enterprise in Supporting Women’s Empowerment, about the role of women in (social) enterprise but statistics still indicate up to 350 million women world-wide are living in poverty.’
‘At iSE, we are passionate about empowering women and our ‘Enterprising Skills for Women‘ (ESW) project will provide real skills and knowledge-based learning that will not only be capacity and confidence-building, but will enable women to start and manage sustainable, transformational enterprises.’
