Participate in research into gender business development support

WES has been commissioned by the Scottish Government to carry out research into enterprise support for women led businesses in Scotland, with a focus on best practice in tackling the gender gap which currently exists in enterprise. While women represent 51% of the Scottish population just 20% of all businesses are majority owned by women.

The research is a joint initiative involving Scottish Enterprise, Highlands & Islands Enterprise, Business Gateway and the Scottish Government.

As part of the research WES would like to hold focus groups involving women owned businesses. This will cover:

  • Personal experience of business support in Scotland.

  • Gender themes in business support.

  • Awareness of gender-specific research, programmes and best practice.

It is not a requirement for participating businesses to have had experience or knowledge of gender specific business support delivery, rather this is a knowledge gathering exercise to map the current support available and gauge understanding of gender specific business development issues.

We very much hope you’ll be able to join us at a focus group. If you would like to attend, please contact us, telling us where you are based and we'll be in touch with details of any local sessions.
