Tsuts’weye supports women entrepreneurs in the Shuswap.
A new project supporting female entrepreneurs has been launched in the Shuswap. Tsuts’weye is a three-year, federally funded initiative through Western Economic Diversification Canada and facilitated locally through Community Futures Shuswap. The project supports women-owned or women led enterprises in the start-up, expansion or ongoing operational phase of business in the Shuswap.
Tsuts’weye means butterfly in Secwepemc and is symbolic of the “butterfly effect”. When one woman is empowered in a community the effects can often be powerful and far-reaching.
THE FOUR PROJECT PILLARS TO SUPPORT WOMEN ARE:
The Tsuts’weye Team
The purpose of Tsuts’weye is to support women entrepreneurs to build skills, knowledge and networks, improving their businesses success.
Working with a project and consultant team, Carmen will guide Tsuts’weye to project deliverables and effective outcomes.
Julie ensures that all women of the Shuswap are included in this project, and that barriers are recognized and addressed throughout the project.
Caroline is the chair of the Advisory Round Table and provides guidance and support to the project and acts as a Mentor to women entrepreneurs.
