    Abstract

    Julie R. Weeks was a leading advocate for women’s enterprise, an internationally renowned expert in women’s enterprise policy and a great friend to women’s enterprise researchers across the globe. A double graduate of the University of Michigan, Julie used her skills in research, public policy, and communications to advocate for women’s enterprise and to support researchers, policymakers and practitioners in the field. In a career spanning more than thirty years, Julie was personally responsible for much of the research-based information on the state of women business owners and their enterprises in the United States.
