Women’s Entrepreneurship Day (WED) and #ChooseWOMEN were founded to empower women and inspire girls in business globally. Women’s Entrepreneurship Day (WED) ignites women leaders, innovators, and entrepreneurs to initiate startups, drive economic expansion, and advance communities worldwide. Women’s Entrepreneurship Day is a movement that carries throughout the year in support of female entrepreneurs globally. Our mission is to alleviate poverty by empowering, celebrating, and supporting women in business worldwide, as well as to gather a think tank of inspiring women leaders who can amplify our message of expanding women in business in communities around the world.
New York State’s Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York City’s Mayor Bill De Blasio proclaimed Women’s Entrepreneurship Day an official day on November 19th. Our student ambassador global initiative is in full swing; engaged top colleges include New York University, Harvard, Babson, USC and Clarkson. Our global team of ambassadors from China to Saudi Arabia stand primed to activate their communities with the WED movement and #ChooseWomen to make a significant impact this year!
WED received massive global media attention before, during, and after the inaugural launch on November 19th, 2014 around the world. Please view these media links that covered our initiative, Forbes and Marie Claire. Watch this video celebrating the WED events around the world – Click Here!
By supporting Women’s Entrepreneurship Day, you will join us with bringing awareness to the 250 million girls living in poverty globally that deserve to be elevated and given a chance in life, while simultaneously inspiring and empowering women around the world.
From the innovation from Silicon Valley in the United States to Bangalore in India, one thing we’ve never taken a serious look at is the nature of women as game-changers and agents of change in the entrepreneurial ecosystem. Since we can remember in the Industrial Revolution, women have been the silent shadow leaders, strengthening corporations at the expense of individual empowerment and benefit to society, yet have not created the one thing that could be an exponential game changer – gender equality in
the Entrepreneurial Sphere.
The WED Fellows is a bold experiment to rethink and redesign the nature of this paradigm and re-invent entrepreneurship from the ground up. We must have women lead the way. Our Fellows are a small group of game-changers and trailblazers that think and act bravely.
We are looking for incredible women to serve as full-time, part-time, and/or seasoned entrepreneurs to serve in advisory capacities. Do any of the following apply to you? You are:
• Excited about collaborating with brilliant minds and powerful women and a few good men in an ecosystem of top-notch government leaders, entrepreneurs, creators, investors?
• Looking to co-found a venture for success?
• Ready to tackle challenges that matter to you and creating a positive world for men and women with Wendy Diamond Founder and Humanitarian of WED?
• Interested in being mentored by Annette Richardson and Kunal Sood (Chairs of WED Fellows) in leadership, innovation, and entrepreneurship?
• Currently slammed, but curious about what we’re up to and want occasional
