Women’s Entrepreneurship Day Organization (WEDO) and international campaign #ChooseWOMEN is a non-governmental volunteer organization. Our movement accelerates and 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 and Civil Society to collaborate and find solutions in critical areas of entrepreneurship eco-systems, education and policy creation to empower women in business. WEDO is celebrated at the United Nations and in 144 countries and 65 universities/colleges internationally. When women are elevated financially, communities, states, and countries prosper, this builds a global blueprint to alleviate and eradicate poverty. Join our movement, and become a part of this driven and 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, and 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, 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:
