A women’s entrepreneurship roundtable was conducted on Friday, December 13, in Spokane, Washington state, at Greater Spokane Incorporated, in association with United States Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) and the Direct Selling Association (DSA).

The roundtable discussion was aimed at encouraging more and more women to get involved in entrepreneurship, while also highlighting the importance of family, freedom, and flexibility,in order to operate an independent business.

Joseph N. Mariano, the President of DSA, said, “Today, 74.8 percent of direct sellers are women. We are proud to support women entrepreneurs in direct selling and have done so for more than a century. Foundational leaders like these women are critical to the direct selling industry and entrepreneurship roundtable events with their elective representatives provide the opportunity to share their insights and affect change.”

Congresswoman McMorris Rodgers said, “As a champion for entrepreneurs in Eastern Washington, I’m dedicated to supporting women who are excited about building a business and creating jobs. It was my pleasure to partner with the DSA on this roundtable to hear the stories of these women leaders. I applaud the Association for seeking out opportunities for their members to share their regulatory concerns and new ideas to help promote women in business.”
