The Meath Women in Biz & Tech network announces its first quarterly meeting of 2022 on Friday 29th of April at 11am. Themed 'Digital Innovation & The Power of Marketing' this event will hear from two Meath based business women; Kate Scott, CEO & Co-Founder of Holotoyz and Helena Hemeryck, CEO & Co-Founder of Chez Emily Irish Belgian Chocolates. SInead Smith from Meath Womens Refuge & Support Services will join us as we mark 'Go Purple Day'. Register on www.countymeathchamber.ie.
The Meath Women in Biz & Tech network is open to all women in business and aims to bring them together to foster and encourage growth in enterprise, entrepreneurship, or self-employment and to share their experiences. The first event for 2022 will be held virtually, with plans for a face-to-face celebration in June.
The network, now in its third year, is a joint initiative between County Meath Chamber and the Meath Local Enterprise Office with support from Meta who have been a proud supporter of Meath Women in Biz & Tech since its launch in 2020. Meta has been a constant presence in supporting businesses in County Meath over the last number of years, working closely with County Meath Chamber to provide funding assistance for Meath Businesses during the Covid-19 pandemic, and again in 2021 to support the older people's network in Meath by gifting Mí Meath gift cards to the network as a boost to the local economy.
Aoife Flynn, Community Development Manager at Meta’s Clonee Data Centre said; "At Meta, we’re committed to investing in local communities and to supporting initiatives that help create a more diverse and inclusive workforce. We are proud to continue our support of the Meath Women in Biz & Tech network in 2022. This network is a great opportunity for women to connect with each other, share learnings, overcome challenges, and get inspired by their peers.
Commenting on the first event, Paula McCaul, CEO of Meath County Chamber said; “We are really looking forward to welcoming our members back for 2022 and are excited to meet the newcomers too. Don't be shy, this network is inclusive, good fun and open to all!"
Lorna Cooney, Meath Local Enterprise Office, who will be in attendance to offer support and advice said, "The local enterprise office is delighted to be part of this initiative and has always fostered an entrepreneurial spirit amongst businesswomen in the County. It has never been more important for female entrepreneurs to connect with other like-minded individuals and share knowledge and experiences. Such networking events provide a safe and convenient platform for businesswomen to expand their connections and build valuable relationships."
