Podcast: Fran Pastore Of The Women’s Business Development Council

This week’s guest on ‘Navel Gazing: The Valley Indy Podcast’ is Fran Pastore, the chief executive officer of the Connecticut Women’s Business Council.

The council helps get women-owned businesses get off the ground in a number of ways Pastore details in the podcast.

The group also has an office on Roosevelt Drive in Derby, and has helped a number of Valley businesses get off the ground, including Wildflour Cupcakes & Sweets in downtown Seymour.

Pastore also talks about the flood of sexual harassment accusations that have dominated the news cycle recently, and whether the discussion will change behaviors.
