As Women’s History Month continues, DoorDash Canada made a historic announcement. The delivery platform unveiled its new Made by Women platform, dedicated to amplifying the voices and contributions of women chefs and restaurateurs.

Shilpa Arora, General Manager, DoorDash Canada“As a female leader, I am proud of the ongoing commitment at DoorDash to amplifying female voices and providing funding for women-owned businesses,” says Shilpa Arora, General Manager of DoorDash Canada. “This program aims to empower women across Canada and make a tangible impact and empower local economies. With DoorDash's dedication to supporting female entrepreneurs and leaders, we aim to create lasting change and opportunities for women in the restaurant industry.”

As a press release outlined, the program will offer access to marketing, educational, and financial resources restaurants need to succeed, grow, and make an impact.

DoorDash is launching the Made by Women Grant program in partnership with Monday Girl, which will provide fifteen $10,000 grants to Canadian women-owned restaurants. The program aims to provide funding to support the growth of women-owned restaurants in Canada.

The Made By Women program is an extension of DoorDash’s ongoing Entrepreneurship & Access program, which helps level the playing field for entrepreneurs and increase opportunities for businesses owned by immigrants, people of color, and women. The educational and marketing support of the program will become available later in 2024.

Martine English, Senior Merchant Brand Manager, DoorDash Canada"Today's launch of Made by Women is incredibly rewarding. It's been inspiring to see this initiative come to life and connect with merchants, knowing the impact it will have on their businesses and communities,” said Martine English, Senior Merchant Brand Manager of DoorDash Canada. “At DoorDash Canada, we're proud to be a force for good and champion women chefs and restaurateurs, empowering them to make a lasting difference in the industry."
