My favorite day of the year! Just kidding but this one is up there for me. I am so proud to be an entrepreneur and to share and to talk about it. I love to share the entrepreneurial spirit with women and girls when given the chance. These ladies help make Absolute Pilates my entrepreneurs’ dream. I am so happy to have helped them become entrepreneurs in there own right.
Women’s Entrepreneurship Day #ChooseWOMEN is a non-governmental volunteer organization started by social entrepreneur and humanitarian Wendy Diamond, that empowers, celebrates, and supports women in business worldwide. Launched in 2013, WED works globally to empower women and girls to become active participants in the economy by igniting a network of women leaders, innovators, and entrepreneurs to initiate startups, drive economic expansion, and advance communities around the world. In order to achieve this ambitious goal, WED builds and catalyzes the vital networks of like-minded individuals and organizations that women business leaders need in order to realize their full potential and change the world.
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 ecosystems, 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 and countries prosper. It builds a global blueprint to alleviate and eradicate poverty.
Since the first WEDO, we have grown our organization to become a powerful network for women in business, and have reached over 5 billion people. WED has been extensively covered by global media outlets, including, MERCEDES: The Power of Female Entrepreneurship, FORBES: Best Way to Save the World: Put Women In Charge, FOX NEWS: Beyond the Dream: Women Helping Women.
