|Subject:||National Business Women's Week - October 18, 23, 2020|
|In the near future, I will be introducing a resolution designating the week of October 18-23 as “National Business Women’s Week” in our Commonwealth.
The week celebrates the accomplishments of our business women by saluting the achievements of all working women.
Every year, women in the workforce take on stronger, more empowering roles. They run their own businesses, take charge of the boardroom, and build upon last year’s successes. At one time, very few women even had a voice.
Today, women-owned businesses generate nearly $1.8 trillion in sales. Of privately-owned companies, women own 40 percent of them and employ almost 9 million people. Their contributions to the economy cannot go unnoticed.
Please join me in recognizing the achievements and efforts of business women in Pennsylvania.
