Did you know that November 19th is World Women’s Entrepreneurship Day?
You may ask why this is important? Well ladies, FEMALE EMPOWERMENT!
According to FUNDRA the U.S. alone has 12.3 million women-owned businesses which generate $1.8 TRILLION a year! That’s a lot of successful ladies out there!
Despite the fact that women around the world are embracing entrepreneurship and are integral contributors to the economy, they are frequently overlooked in the business world.
That’s why Women’s Entrepreneurship Day exists — to celebrate and empower female business leaders and entrepreneurs all around the world.
WED (Women’s Entrepreneurship Day) was founded by author, humanitarian and entrepreneur Wendy Diamond to encourage and value women entrepreneurs.
One of my favorite women-owned fashion brands, Tory Burch celebrates this empowering day 365 days a year with the Tory Burch Foundation which advances women’s empowerment and entrepreneurship in the United States by providing access to capital, education and digital resources. Each month, the foundation provides online tools and digital education to more than 300,000 women, and more than 10,000 women have created their business plans on ToryBurchFoundation.org. In addition, the Foundation offers free weekly webinars supporting small business owners.
Each holiday season the Tory Burch Foundation releases limited edition products “created by” and “benefiting” women-owned businesses.
“We started the brand with a founding principle to be purpose-driven and knew that a foundation would be a big part of that. Our dedication to women’s empowerment and entrepreneurship is reflected in the work of the Tory Burch Foundation. 100% of all net proceeds from this collection benefit the Foundation.” — Tory Burch
One of my favorites from the collection is the Annual Limited Edition Tory Burch Foundation Seed Box. Featuring a curated selection of products made exclusively by women entrepreneurs — including a scarf designed by Tory Burch — all packaged in a printed keepsake box. 100% of all net proceeds benefit the Tory Burch Foundation, which empowers women and entrepreneurs.
