Businesswomen -- Training of; Instructional systems; Seminars -- Planning;
The last decade has witnessed many changes in the business community. Small businesses have emerged as the thriving force in the U.S. economy and the increased percentage of women in this area is too great to ignore. Today women enter the small business arena for various reasons but it initially began with the women's movement in the 1970's. According to Jones (1991), the 1980's found women going into business for themselves after encountering the "glass ceiling," a barrier that kept them from advancing to upper level management. The problem is that since many women did not advance up the ladder of management, they are not properly trained or do not have the proper experience to venture out on their own.
