Description

We have an opening for an intern who would love to assist in our world-wide initiatives to empower women in business - Women’s Entrepreneurship Day (WED) and our international digital campaign #WomenWOW.

With a variety of days dedicated to various causes, one might ask – Why does the world need a Women’s Entrepreneurship Day and why should I support it? Consider then, that women perform 66% of the world’s work, yet earn 10% of the world’s income. At the same time, they account for 85% of consumer purchases and control $20 trillion in worldwide spending. Women’s Entrepreneurship Day(WED) is generating 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. The flagship UN event is live-streamed and celebrated in 144 countries and 110 universities and colleges celebrating Women’s Entrepreneurship Day internationally reaching over 1.4 million people. 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. In addition to our mission of empowerment, we are committed to gathering a think tank of inspiring women leaders who can amplify our message of expanding businesses with social-good initiatives 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 19. With the help of our WED community, we aim to have more official world leaders follow suit.

We have rallied the world’s most influential women and men to join our movement!
