Aboriginal women in business issues to be discussed
The Wachiay Friendship Centre Women's Business Programs is hosting a forum this Friday on the issues facing aboriginal women in business.
Six topics have been identified as potential challenges for entrepreneurs.
"We invite aboriginal women from the Comox Valley Regional District to participate in this one-day forum to help us find ways to turn those challenges into opportunities," an event spokesperson said. "We want to hear what you have to say."
The facilitator will be Caledonia Fred of the Nuu-Chah-Nulth Economic Development Corporation in Port Alberni.
The forum will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Wachiay Friendship Centre (1625B McPhee Ave., Courtenay). Lunch will be served during the break from noon to 1 p.m., and coffee, tea and light refreshments will be available throughout the day.
