The COVID-19 pandemic has forced small business support organizations and educational institutions across the globe to re-think how they deliver entrepreneurship education and training. The unprecedented transition to online delivery methods presents an opportunity to create more inclusive entrepreneurship courses, programs and small business support services.
Telfer School of Management, University of Ottawa’s ‘Gender-Smart Entrepreneurship Education & Training Plus’ (GEET+) is a purpose-built framework and scorecard that enables educators and trainers to adopt inclusive perspectives and content within entrepreneurship, small business management and new venture courses and programs.
Authored by Dr. Barbara Orser and Dr. Catherine Elliott, GEET+ translates academic research and evidence-based insights into practical applications to support the development of inclusive entrepreneurship education and training. Telfer faculty are also collaborating with global knowledge partners, such as Women’s Economic Initiative, to adopt insights from this ground-breaking report and strengthen the design and delivery of entrepreneurship courses and programs.
