Kate Isler and Susan Gates, Founders of The WMarketplace will begin by explaining the mission of The WMarketplace, which directly is tied to current events, and then shift to what our experience has been in forming The WMarketplace in a short time-frame. We’ll highlight how our previous experience lead us to creating this new business and some of the lessons we have learned in a short time frame.
Presenters: Kate Isler & Susan Gates, WMarketplace
Sponsor: Thurston EDC, Washington Center for Women in Business
Kate and Susan met 20 years ago at a tech startup. Although that startup didn’t last, their friendship and passion for gender equity did. The WMarketplace is a result of their vision that women need to achieve parity in economic power in order to have parity in all aspects of their lives.
