Women’s Day events set for March 8 in Elmsdale

Community Online First

ELMSDALE: Nova Scotia Works — Futureworx, in partnership with the East Hants and Districts Chamber of Commerce, is inviting everyone to explore their upcoming, “Women of Possibilities” event celebrating women in business.

The employment centre, located in the Lloyd E. Matheson Centre in Elmsdale, is using International Women’s Day on March 8 to showcase the many female entrepreneurs in this community by bringing them together in the foyer of the building between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

This event is an opportunity to meet female business leaders who have been recognized for their outstanding contributions to the community, from promoting excellence in diversity and inclusion, building a home-based business to using social media as a marketing tool.

Nova Scotia Works has supported numerous clients as they navigate the Self-Employment Benefit Program using it as a stepping stone to make their business dreams come true. Clients have said that running their own business allows them the flexibility to create their own hours, be there for their family and to contribute to the local economy while pursuing their passion.

If you are interested in starting your own business, this is an opportunity to learn from other women who have blazed their own trail using the supports and services available from Nova Scotia Works, the East Hants and Districts Chamber of Commerce and the Community Business Development Corporation.

Many businesses throughout the region are led by women and this event will demonstrate how to mentor and support one another to explore one’s own entrepreneurial visions and possibilities.
