This rise in numbers of women in the workplace over the last 50 years has resulted in women entering a much broader range of occupations, from mainly supportive, nurturing roles such as teaching and nursing to every walk of occupational and professional life. Therefore, women are now found in occupations, industries and roles previously regarded as the sole prerogative of men. And more recent trend, “the number of women in self-employment is increasing at a faster rate than the number of men. In 2014 women made up just under one third of the self-employed (1.4 million). Since 2009 the number of self-employed women has increased by 34%. (Source: Office for National Statistics)”
Research, Statistics on Women, Work & Self-Employment:
- Women were nearly five times more likely to mention family reasons for becoming self-employed than men. A fifth of females chose to work as self-employed to help combine ‘family commitments/wanted to work at home’ and employment in a flexible manner. Conversely, men were almost twice as likely to say that one of the reasons they became self-employed was to ‘make more money’ than were women. ().
- More than 126 million women entrepreneurs were starting or running new businesses in 67 economies in 2012 ()
- An estimated 48 million female entrepreneurs and 64 million female established business owners currently employ one or more people in their businesses; seven million female entrepreneurs and five million established business owners are expected to grow their ventures by at least six employees in five years.()
- Around 30% of all US businesses are majority female owned. The number of women-owned businesses continues to grow at twice the rate of all US firms, and they are increasing in economic clout.
- Women in the USA are twice as likely to be entrepreneurially active as women in the UK. The entrepreneurial rates for men are roughly the same in the UK as the US, any significant increase in business formation will only come from encouraging more women into business. ()
The Women In Business Expo, is supporting the current changes, trends that we are seeing in work, business today. Women’s expectations, aspirations for their careers, roles within work, home are evolving and with the help of technology we are seeing more and more seeking solutions to achieving a work, life balance. Access to computers, mobiles and communication on social media are all now firmly a standard part of running, managing a business and working flexibly. The Expo brings together women from all industries, professional, corporate backgrounds, providing a platform to showcase successful women businesses, giving out a strong message ‘that anything is possible, achievable in business with the right mind-set, access to business experts and working around the challenges in traditional business.’
The expo includes a 'business fashion show' with a runway showcasing many talented, successful business owners. There is also a separate dedicated area which has stall holders providing a wide range of business support; with advice from help with setting up a business to information, suppliers with solutions to business growth, website, email marketing, sales, marketing, PR, financial, funding, accounting and legal. The rise of women entering into self-employment and professional women interested in networking with women business owners has firmly placed this event has the region’s biggest no.1 expo for ‘women in business’. The increase of female creativity, entrepreneurship is also helping in breaking down traditional attitudes to work, the roles within the workplace and carving out alternative working practices, to suit lifestyles, forging ahead new ways of working together and building partnerships.
