By the year 2010 it is estimated that there will be 1 million women in Canada who own their own business. It therefore seems timely that there be a publication that is aimed at women in business.
Company of Women, an organization that supports, connects and promotes women in business, is launching its new publication, Company, this fall. Available in print format as well as electronically, the magazine will be distributed in the GTA.
"There's few publications out there to support women in building and growing their businesses," observes Company of Women founder, Anne Day. "We're busy so we need snippets of information, not lengthy articles," she adds. "We have a team of seasoned writers who have got behind the magazine and will be regular contributors," reports Day, "such as host of the Money Show, Patricia Lovett-Reid who has written several books on women and finances and Peggy Grall, author of Just Change It."
This venture is also being warmly supported by other women's business organizations in the GTA such as the Canadian Association of Women Executives and Entrepreneurs and WINGS Canada who will be distributing the publication to their members.
With over 370 members from across the GTA, Company of Women offers a variety of programs and services to support women business owners and professionals, with monthly dinners in Oakville and Toronto, breakfast meetings in Burlington and Mississauga, trade shows and mastermind groups, as well as an extensive website.
