March 8th is International Women’s Day.
It’s a day to recognize the need to work toward a more gender equal world. To raise awareness against bias. And to take action for equality. It’s also a time to celebrate women’s achievements and help increase their visibility. It is with these goals in mind that we are pleased to spotlight some of the newest female business owners that have chosen to open their businesses in Downtown Burlington. These women have opened businesses during a pandemic. They’ve experienced lockdowns, changes to their business plans, supply chain disruption and in many cases turning their business from storefront to online retail. Please join us in celebrating this very special and diverse group of women who help make our downtown so special.
