Based on our survey of media coverage on entrepreneurship the Council identified a gap in culture where we could better support media makers in including women entrepreneurs in their stories. As such, the Council developed a resource to contextualize the experience of women business owners and leaders and then provide tools and resources for journalists and other media makers that want more information on how to better cover women’s entrepreneurship. This resource includes key definitions, information on how to identify bias in the media, and resources to find women business owners and leaders to interview for news and media coverage.
