“Research has shown, COVID-19 Pandemic has had devastating effects on women in the workplace and been especially challenging for female entrepreneurs,” said weVENTURE WBC’s Executive Director Kathryn Rudloff.
“This year’s Women Who Rock Awards are an opportunity to celebrate local women who, despite a challenging year, are inspiring others through their work and leadership. We also want to recognize those local businesses who have helped support their female employees and have championed their success in the workplace,” Rudloff added.
