Today is Women's Entrepreneurship Day - Celebrate, Empower and Support Women in Business #WOMENWOW #WED

Wednesday, November 19, 2014

 #WED at the UN- Rose Byrne, Quvenzhane Wallis, Lesley Jane Seymour of More Magazine, Amy Robach of GMA, and Miss Universe Gabriela Isler speak on social entrepreneurship.

Today is the day we celebrate women entrepreneurs!
"The WED mission is to engage women and men globally to pledge their support for a women owned business/cause with: Talent, Time, or Treasure. WED promotes the idea that empowering a community advances the next generation of leaders. "


The inaugural Women's Entrepreneurship Day (WED) will take place on Wednesday, November 19, 2014. The United Nations Foundation has joined to support Women’s Entrepreneurship Day founder Wendy Diamond and sponsors PwC, BNP Paribas, Nestle, and Microsoft for an in-person event at the United Nations. To ensure global citizens everywhere can join in the celebration, the event will be live streamed in 144 countries. This monumental event, in partnership with the U.S. Department of State and GEW, will be the world’s largest celebration of successful entrepreneurs, women innovators, and job creators launching startups; bringing ideas to life, driving economic growth, and expanding human welfare.

Women’s Entrepreneurship Day is a part of a worldwide movement that will continue throughout the year in support of female entrepreneurs on every continent. The primary goal is to empower women and their businesses. This will lead to the creation of a think tank comprised of global women leaders and the message: Expand businesses with social good initiatives in communities locally and globally.

“Empowering women worldwide and investing in their futures helps drive and promote economic vitality and security locally and globally,” said Diamond. “Twenty-first century leadership skills, such as cooperation, communication, and sharing are more commonly associated with women. We want to celebrate the unwavering positives that women entrepreneurs bring to the global economy as well as inspire and support future generations of women entrepreneurs. By working together with partners like the UN Foundation we can ensure that the important issues of women’s empowerment and entrepreneurship are reaching audiences around the world.”

On December 3, 2014, the first Wednesday after Thanksgiving, WED will also launch the digital campaign ‪#‎WomenWOW‬. Inspired by #CyberMonday, ‪#‎GivingTuesday‬ and Small Business Saturday, this social media campaign will encourage everyone to support women owned businesses and causes


FACT: There are over 812 million women in developing countries who could contribute more fully to their economies.
