Join Women Rule editorial director Anna Palmer for an interview with Teresa Carlson, Vice President of Worldwide Public Sector, Amazon Web Services to discuss how businesses are pivoting online because of the coronavirus pandemic, how the public sector is adapting to the crisis and what AWS is doing to help other organizations on the frontlines of COVID-19.
Dionna Dorsey, Owner and Designer, District of Clothing will also join the discussion to share how she is keeping her small business afloat during the pandemic and how the fallout from the protests over the killing of George Floyd is impacting her Washington, D.C.-based clothing brand.
The interviews kick off “Women and COVID-19, Small business owners in Crisis” series. The social and economic burden from the pandemic has hit women especially hard. The pandemic has pushed all small businesses to the edge of survival, but women-owned small businesses are having to navigate previous hurdles, such as lack of access to capital, in addition to now being shut out of the Payment Protection Plan, struggling to find child care and pivoting their business operations because of social distancing restrictions and the economic shutdown.
