WED

Women’s Entrepreneurship Day Organization (WEDO)

 
 

Women’s Entrepreneurship Day Organization (WEDO) is a non-governmental volunteer organization that empowers, celebrates, and supports women in business worldwide. Launched in 2013, WED works globally to empower women and girls 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. In order to achieve this ambitious goal, WED builds and catalyzes the vital networks of like-minded individuals and organizations that women business leaders need in order to realize their full potential and change the world.

The movement accelerates and educates the world on the importance of why it’s pivotal to empower women in business globally. WEDO convenes Business Leaders, Change Makers, Government Officials and Civil Society to collaborate and find solutions in critical areas of entrepreneurship ecosystems, education and policy creation to empower women in business. WEDO is celebrated at the United Nations and in 144 countries and 65 universities/colleges internationally. When women are elevated financially, communities and countries prosper. It builds a global blueprint to alleviate and eradicate poverty.

Our mission is to empower, support and celebrate women in business to alleviate poverty worldwide. It is Dr. Anne Truong's honor and privilege to be Virginia’s Ambassador for WED. Let us join together with our sisters locally and around the world to create a movement. We can change the world!
