Our guest is the Downtown Des Moines Chamber Executive Jennifer Chittenden and we chat it up about the 2016 LEAP program. What is it? Consider that Iowa, according to American Express, ranks dead last in the nation when it comes to support of female owned businesses. LEAP is one tool that seeks to change that. We talk about the program, who it is for and more: (Oh, and the young lady with Jennifer is intern Sarah Slinker and we chat with her as well.)
