Business Preparedness Guide: Running a business in challenging times
It is our belief that SMEs in this country are a powerful force for positive change. They are not only the employers and earners; they are the dynamic drivers of change; the inspirers; the thinkers and the doers. We believe it is vital for our economy that the SME sector is as protected and supported as it can be in the weeks and months ahead. Which is why our focus is on sharing information, starting conversations and reaching out to provide support to help businesses start, survive and grow.

The report also says just 25% of local technology businesses have equal representation in their leadership teams (41% to 60% of their leaders are female), while only one in ten tech businesses work to actively address discrimination.
