Major new push to aid women in their business careers
Women in Business has launched its new programme for supporting women through every stage of their careers, including self-employment.
The Connect programme is funded by the European Social Fund and delivered by East Belfast Enterprise.
It's also supported by the Department for Employment and Learning and Belfast City Council.
Women in Business chief executive Roseann Kelly said the programme would help women "through every stage of their career, from exploring their options, considering self-employment, to growing and developing professionally, becoming leaders and role models." Frances Magee and Linzi Conway said they benefited from earlier programmes. Ms Magee has set up interior design business Dress this House, while Ms Conway started Key To Success Consultants (KTS).
