At In the Field, we’re very interested in the debates around gender and work. We know that women face a number of constraints while running their businesses, and women are constantly strategizing on how to balance their domestic responsibilities while facing prejudice as women business owners.
In this episode, we’re looking at how crucial social interactions within business ecosystems work to enable or limit the aspirations of women entrepreneurs.
