WEDO is supported by Worldwide Ambassadors, who promote WED in their area and create events to support Women in their region.
Women’s Entrepreneurship Day
Women’s Entrepreneurship Day (WED) was inspired in 2013 after founder Wendy Diamond volunteered in Honduras with the Adelante Foundation, an organization that provides microcredit to locally impoverished women.
Recognizing the fact that women perform 66% of the world’s work, yet only earn 10% of the world’s income and at the same time, women account for 85% of consumer purchases and control $20 trillion in worldwide spending, Diamond was inspired to create a simplified movement in the world to empower women in business to alleviate poverty.
Whilst Women’s Entrepreneurship is celebrated every day, November 19th is the global day of celebration, recognised by the UN and fits in with UN Sustainability goals #1, #4, #5, #8, #9 #10, #17.
Join us in helping women everywhere take a step towards shattering every glass ceiling in their way.
