Reversing the Decline in Women Entrepreneurship: Opportunities for Rebuilding the Economy

The Committee on Small Business Subcommittee on Economic Growth, Tax, and Capital Access will hold a hybrid hearing titled: “Reversing the Decline in Women Entrepreneurship: Opportunities for Rebuilding the Economy.” The hearing is scheduled to begin at 10:00 A.M. on Tuesday, June 15, 2021 in Room 2360 of the Rayburn House Office Building. Participating members can also join remotely via Zoom.

Women-owned small businesses have been severely impacted by the coronavirus pandemic with many reporting a decline in sales and fear of permanent closure. Yet, as the nation begins to reopen, women entrepreneurship has the ability to become an economic engine of growth. To ensure a robust recovery, Congress will need to consider ways to support women entrepreneurs, workers, and small business owners. This hearing will give Members an opportunity to hear about how the pandemic has exacerbated perpetual challenges facing women entrepreneurs and how many women responded with innovative solutions.
