A Conflicting Achievement: Geddy’s Mom is Now a Woman Business Enterprise…

April 29th, 2022

How is it possible that it’s still necessary in 2022 for women to go through the obstacles of certifying that they are indeed women and do indeed own and run businesses to conjure greater community support in order to attempt to equalize the gender disparity in business loans, revenue and success that still exist? (Am I coming off as emotional as a write this? Does that count against me?). We have female world leaders getting the job done well while simultaneously using their bodies to provide health and nourishment to their feeding infant all-the-while showing greater concern to and impact on their communities as compared to their male counterparts. And YET the immense impact that women have on both the economy and society as a whole continues to be in question, evident in the inequality of job opportunities, salaries and loans. Expanding on this conflict for minority and veteran owned businesses is a conversation that is of likely greater intensity, for which I can’t claim to speak on with experience, but am eager to listen to and promote.
