International Women's Day is March 8th this year, and the SPL MakerSpace has partnered with Perth Community Futures to offer a FREE speaker series highlighting inspirational women entrepreneurs all month long. Our speakers will share their real stories, challenges, successes, and failures that they have encountered in their journeys. Whether you are considering starting a business, or have already taken that step, these talks will inspire, motivate and educate. The speaker series is free and is being held virtually through Zoom.
