Join us to celebrate Women's Entrepreneurship Day (WED) on November 18th, 2016 at the United Nations.
With a variety of days dedicated to various causes, one might ask - Why does the world need a Women's Entrepreneurship Day? Consider then, that women perform 66% of the world's work, yet earn 10% of the world's income. At the same time, they account for 85% of consumer purchases and control $20 trillion in worldwide spending. Women's Entrepreneurship Day (WED) is generating a movement that carries throughout the year in support of women in business globally. WED ignites women leaders, innovators, and entrepreneurs to initiate startups, drive economic expansion, and advance communities worldwide. WED is celebrated in 144 countries and 110 universities/colleges internationally. Our mission is to empower the 4 billion women across the globe to be catalysts of change, and uplift the 250 million girls living in poverty globally.
