Why Annie's Project?
This four-session course is a discussion-based workshop to connect women and subject-matter experts. As we work through important discussions in the areas of keeping financial records and interpreting results in low revenue times, women will find many opportunities for questions, sharing, and connecting with the presenters and other participants.
