Our movement accelerates and educates the world on the importance of why it’s pivotal to empower women in business globally.
Women's Entrepreneurship Day (WED) convenes Business Leaders, Change Makers, Government Officials and Civil Society to collaborate and find solutions in critical areas of entrepreneurship ecosystems, education and policy creation to empower women in business. WED is celebrated at the United Nations and in 144 countries and 65 universities/colleges internationally. When women are elevated financially, communities and countries prosper. It builds a global blueprint to alleviate and eradicate poverty.
