Promoting Women’s Enterprise in Cornwall

Saturday, September 16, 2006

Over a lunch of local Cornish food: cheese, chicken and scones with clotted cream, Meg met Carleen Kelemen, Cornwall’s Objective One Partnership Director and women from around Cornwall. The meeting was to discuss how European development funds had been used to promote women in business.


As one of the poorest regions in Britain these funds have been used in a variety of ways. The women included a farmer’s wife who had diversified into bottled water using the farm’s own water source, a local shop owner, women who worked in male dominated industries such as fishing and construction and graduate women who had joined local companies as part of a programme to unlock the potential of some of the many family run businesses.


Meg said:


“I was struck by how committed the women were to living and working in Cornwall. A number of them had returned to the county after moving away, despite the problems of getting employment at a reasonable salary. It is clear that things are improving in Cornwall but there is still some way to go. Women’s contribution is important in improving the productivity of the region.”
