Women in Business Program - Tailored support for women business leaders

The South Australian Government is committed to creating a business environment in which gender has no bearing on the opportunities available.

Research shows businesswomen face different and additional barriers than their male counterparts, impacting on the number of women who choose to start businesses, and their level of success.

The Women in Business Program is a four-year, $4 million commitment to support programs designed to give entrepreneurial-minded women every opportunity to pursue their goals, leading to a more diverse and inclusive business community in South Australia.
