"As I look through the membership list, I see more women in those positions, which 10 to 15 years ago were historically held by men," said Julie Spiro, executive director of the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce.
Of the chamber's more than 400 member businesses, 46 percent are either owned or managed by women, Spiro said. Those industries range from Main Street shops to Jackson Paper, one of the county's largest employers, which has a female president and COO.
It's a different landscape from when Spiro, a Jackson County native, was growing up, or even from when she took the executive director job 15 years ago. Though she doesn't have any hard numbers, her best guesstimate is that the number of female-owned or managed businesses in Jackson County is up about 20 percent from a decade ago.
