“Closing the Economic Gender Gap”

A Presentation by Prabha Mitchell, CEO – Women Entrepreneurs of Saskatchewan

In Saskatchewan, small business is BIG business – as small businesses account for almost 99 percent of all business enterprises.  In this province (and nationally), women own more than 0ne-third of all small businesses.  While it is all positive news, there is a catch.  Nearly two-thirds of women-owned small businesses are in industries characterized by slower growth and lower profitability.  This discrepancy in representation in the entrepreneurship landscape is known as the Gender Entrepreneurship Gap.

Prabha Mitchell, (Hon.) CPA, CGA, M.S.W, is the Chief Executive Officer of the Women Entrepreneurs of Saskatchewan. In this role Prabha is responsible for the operations and strategic management of the organization that has 900 members. The organization provides a wide spectrum of support for women starting, buying, expanding or growing a business. These resources include business planning and advising, business lending, training, mentoring and networking.
