WOMEN’S ENTREPRENEURSHIP DAY SUMMIT 2019

NOVEMBER 15-16, 2019



WOMEN’S ENTREPRENEURSHIP DAY ORGANIZATION IS A MOVEMENT TO EMPOWER, CELEBRATE AND SUPPORT WOMEN IN BUSINESS WORLDWIDE!

We would be honored for you to join us at the United Nations on November 15-16th to celebrate Women’s Entrepreneurship Day (WED)! We are a grassroots mission to alleviate poverty by empowering, celebrating and supporting women in business worldwide. 

Why Attend?

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, and why should I support it? First, consider some basic facts -- women account for 85 percent of consumer purchases and control $20 trillion in worldwide spending. At the same time, they perform 66 percent of the world’s work and 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, and entrepreneurs to initiate startups, drive economic expansion, and advance communities worldwide. WEDO is celebrated in 144 countries and 65 universities/colleges internationally! The WEDO 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. 

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, and Northeastern University. 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 and 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, and become a part of this driven group.
