WHY JOIN?
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, and why should I support it? Consider these basic facts: Women account for 85 percent of consumer purchases and control $20 trillion in worldwide spending. Simultaneously, women 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 passionately dedicated and committed to elevating the following six United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to help make the world a better place:
