Business Women Scotland is an organisation founded 11 years ago dedicated to helping women find support and networking opportunities to allow them to strengthen their business. We produce a bi-monthly digital magazine dedicated to women in business and run a series of Roadshow events and awards to celebrate and empower women in business while tackling the gender gap in enterprise.
Founder Lynne Kennedy MBE is passionate about creating opportunities for women in Scottish businesses to grow and develop.
“Our aim is to give women the support and encouragement to make their mark in the world of business in innovative and groundbreaking ways. We want to recognise and celebrate the success of female entrepreneurship while shaping the agenda for equality.”
