COLUMBUS - 

State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) voted in support of House Bill 103, legislation that works to connect policymakers and entrepreneurs with the goal of highlighting and assisting Ohio women and their business endeavors.


Ohio ranks in the top 10 states for number of women-owned businesses, according to Womenable, an organization that works to support women’s enterprise creation and growth. The objective of HB 103 is to take steps to further improve Ohio’s standing and accelerate the growth of female-owned business in the state.


“Ohio Women’s Week for Policy and Entrepreneurship honors the great strides in business and policy that hardworking women in Ohio are making,” Rep. Anielski said.  “As a business woman, I am pleased to be a part of a General Assembly that actively strives for gender equality in the workforce.”


House Bill 103 names the second week of March “Ohio Women’s Week for Policy and Entrepreneurship,” during which there will be a two-day forum hosted by the state and private sector. The forum, held every even-numbered year, would include a competition for entrepreneurs who are newly established or who have developing business plans.


During the odd-numbered years, a special committee will be appointed, including members from the House and Senate, community leaders, entrepreneurs, business leaders, and appointees by the Governor. The committee will be responsible for issuing a report to the General Assembly, as well as managing the application process.


The bill now heads to the Ohio Senate for further consideration.
