Sheree Foy, Principal Source Harrogate is one of the hundred women FSB members invited to share their wealth of advice and inspiration with women all over the world on International Women’s Day 2018. Sheree was asked to give a piece of advice to any woman starting out in business:
This International Women’s Day (8 March), the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) are raising the visibility of role models for women entrepreneurs with a digital campaign called 100 FSB Women.
Helen Walbey, Chair of the FSB Women in Enterprise Taskforce, said:
“Research shows that women are less likely than their male counterparts to know a person in business and, as a result, have fewer opportunities to benefit from exposure to others with business experience and are less likely to see people like themselves succeeding.
“I’m really excited about the 100 FSB Women campaign. We’re utilising digital platforms to raise the visibility of some really exceptional women. These women come from all sectors and each has a special story to tell and valuable advice to impart to other women.
“With this being the 100 year anniversary of when the first women got the right to vote, following the suffragettes’ campaigning, we felt it was fitting to feature 100 women FSB members and share their wealth of advice and inspiration with women all over the world.”
