Trying to transform your business digitally but don’t know where to start?
The Digital Transformation program is designed to support woman-identified and gender non-binary entrepreneurs in transforming their business digitally and learn more about social media marketing, search engine optimization, e-commerce and other digital marketing categories.

Social media: Strategic Planning, Creative Calendars, Paid Targeted Ads, Analytic Reporting, Community Interaction
Website & SEO: Logo design, website development, eCommerce, SEO
Google Ads: Google Adwords, Online Review, Generation, Social Media Marketing, Google My Business
Step 2: Individual Coaching
You will have individual sessions with an expert digging deep into your digital marketing category of choice. You will also have an Account Manager as a point of contact for support to ask any questions.
Step 3: Graduation
During the second half of the program, entrepreneurs will successfully complete a product on their own and will have an opportunity to share it with the wider group at graduation
The Women of Ontario Social Enterprise Network (WOSEN) offers a suite of programs for women interested in starting or growing their own ventures that seek to have a positive social, cultural or environmental impact through their operations, and/or the sale of their products or services.
Although collectively the term ‘women’ is used throughout this page, WOSEN is dedicated to equity and inclusion, and seeks to support women-identified and gender non-binary entrepreneurs from underserved and underrepresented communities. This includes Indigenous women, women in rural or remote regions, racialized women, newcomer women, LGBTQ2+, women with disabilities, and those who identify as gender non-binary.
WOSEN works to unleash the entrepreneurial energy and capacity of women who have solutions that put people and the planet first. Together, we are redesigning how business supports are provided so these entrepreneurs can build the skills, make the connections, and receive the coaching needed to achieve their missions.
