BELMONT Business Enterprise Centre chief executive Carol Hanlon has been invited to present at the Women Economic Forum (WEF) during March.

More than 200 people will attend the forum in The Hague, Netherlands on March 8-9.

The WEF is a global conference to foster empowering women and connections among women committed to facilitate constructive change in all walks of life.

Ms Hanlon said attending the forum would be an honour as it coincided with International Women’s Day.

She has been selected to address the forum because of her extensive 24 year record of delivering small business development programs for the benefit of women across Australia and internationally.

Ms Hanlon will travel to New York to present a forum on March 14 during UN Commission on the Status of Women about economic empowerment of rural women entrepreneurs through online business incubation.

She was inducted in the Inaugural 2011 WA Women’s Hall of Fame for her passion and commitment with micro small business owners to achieve their business dreams.
