Getting Online: Tips and Tricks To Help You Grow
The CWCLN in partnership with the Social Planning Council of Ottawa (SPCO), is presenting our virtual workshop “Getting Online: Tips and Tricks To Help You Grow”. In this FREE four-week workshop, we will teach you a few tips and tricks to transitioning your business, products and services online.
The pandemic has hit BIPOC women and femme entrepreneurs the hardest – that’s why we decided to launch this workshop to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to learn and adapt to this digital age – especially those who are from historically underserved or underrepresented groups. Although digital inequality is not a new issue, it has been exacerbated by the pandemic as many entrepreneurs and business owners are struggling to keep their businesses operational while having to learn how to navigate the digital landscape. If you’re interested in learning how to optimize your business by taking it online, sign-up for our 4 week workshop & learn how to digitize your business!
These workshops will be conducted in English and Closed Captions will be provided.
