Women’s Entrepreneurship Day (WED) will be celebrated globally on November 19th, 2019, and is the world’s largest grassroots movement and mission dedicated to celebrating, supporting and empowering women worldwide.
Women’s Entrepreneurship Day Organization (WEDO) and international campaign #ChooseWOMEN is a non-governmental volunteer organization started by social entrepreneur Wendy Diamond. WEDO works globally to empower women 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.
Canada recently joined the Women’s Entrepreneurship Day Organization (WEDO) global initiative with the creation of the WEDO Canada Advisory Board. This non-profit organization is working to harness the power of women in business to be catalysts of change and to foster an environment to inspire, connect, and empower women entrepreneurs across the country. Canada is increasingly being recognized as a leader in women’s entrepreneurship, yet women continue to face barriers when accessing financial, entrepreneurial, and social capital. WEDO Canada believes that to truly achieve our full economic potential, we need women to reach theirs.
Women's Entrepreneurship Day is every day! Celebrate, empower, and support women in business.
