University of Washington launching new certificate program for women in entrepreneurship

Like all entrepreneurs, Christy Johnson wears many hats. She’s currently the CEO and founder of strategy consulting firm Artemis Connection, an adjunct faculty member at the University of Washington, a course facilitator at Stanford and a working parent. A few months ago, Johnson noticed a pattern in the students taking her business development class.

What we were noticing was the women were super engaged and they were moving on to do really entrepreneurial things after the course. And in light of everything we’re learning right now, it feels like we should have more women in entrepreneurship.
