Women’s Entrepreneurship Day
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? First, consider some basic facts — women account for 85 percent of consumer purchases and control $20 trillion in worldwide spending. At the same time, they perform 66 percent of the world’s work and only earn 10 percent of the world’s income.
Women’s Entrepreneurship Day (WED) is working to generate 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.
WED is celebrated in 144 countries and 65 universities/colleges internationally! The WED mission is to empower the 4 billion women across the globe to be catalysts of change, and uplift the 250 million girls living in poverty globally.
We are excited to announce that RCA records & WED are partnering to create a PSA video to proclaim the Wednesday after Thanksgiving to support women in business! RCA artists include Justin Timberlake, Shakira, Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys, to name a few! Participating artists are TBD and the PSA is confirmed to air inNovember on CBS!
