As we strive to put the pandemic in the rearview, the experience underscored the ever-present need to be an adaptable business owner. Women-owned businesses are innovating through technology and taking specific steps to attract and retain talent coming out of the pandemic, while constantly molding themselves and their businesses to meet the needs of customers, clients, and employees. In this incredible panel discussion, our speakers from NAWBO National will discuss how you can create a resilient business despite disruptions, survive any economic slowdown, and ride out the uncertainty.
