R.I.’s women-owned businesses falling behind – PBN.com – Providence Business News

Being a woman-owned business myself, it is concerning to hear that, while there are a growing number of women-owned businesses in Rhode Island, they are employing less people.  Our employee numbers in Rhode Island have decreased by 26.8 percent since 1997, and that this was the “worst decline in the country for percentage change of employees.”

 The number of Rhode Islanders employed by women-owned firms declined 26.8 percent to 21,000 in 2012 from 28,678 in 1997. This was the worst decline in the country for percentage change of employees.
