Women's Entrepreneurship Day Organization (WEDO) & international campaign #ChooseWOMEN is a non-governmental volunteer organization.
Our movement accelerates & educates the world on the importance of why it's pivotal to empower women in business globally. WEDO convenes Business Leaders, Change Makers, Government Officials & Civil Society to collaborate & find solutions in critical areas of entrepreneurship eco-systems, education & policy creation to empower women in business. WEDO is celebrated at the United Nations & in 144 countries & 65 universities/colleges internationally. When women are elevated financially, communities, states, & countries prosper, this builds a global blueprint to alleviate & eradicate poverty. Our achievements this past year include funding 500 Syrian refugee girls to attend high school in Jordan. In New York at the United Nations, the WED Summit sponsored 75 students from Black Girls Code, Girls Who Code, Lalela, Rethink Academy, The Young Women's Leadership School in Astoria, Yale, George Washington University, & Northeastern University. Their presence represents WED's commitment to inspiring & uplifting the next generation of young women to become strong global leaders. The WED Summit granted 500 microloans to impoverished women to start their own business. In Oman, our WED ambassador announced an initiative to empower women & girls to use their vote against arranged marriage. In Uruguay, a partnership with a local university offered 20 scholarships to the girls present at the WED summit. Our Philippines team educated 1000 rural women with financial literacy - all over the world our Ambassador team is making an impact! Join our movement, & become a part of this driven & inspiring group of WEDO Change Makers, Social Entrepreneurs, Philanthropists, Major Fortune 500 C-Suite Executives, UN Senior Officials, Heads of International Organizations, Civil Society Leaders, CEOs, Celebrities, & Major News Media.
With a variety of calendar days dedicated to various causes across the globe, one might ask:
Why does the world need Women's Entrepreneurship Day & ChooseWOMEN, & why should I support it?
Consider these basic facts:
Women account for 85 percent of consumer purchases & control $20 trillion in worldwide spending. Simultaneously, women perform 66 percent of the world's work & only earn 10 percent of the world's income.
Women's Entrepreneurship Day (WEDO) is a movement that carries throughout the year in support of women in business globally. WED ignites women leaders, innovators, & entrepreneurs to initiate startups, drive economic expansion, & advance communities worldwide.
