Women’s Entrepreneurship Day celebrates women entrepreneurs around the globe

This month sees the third Women’s Entrepreneurship Day (WED) taking place on 19th November, a day on which the work of women entrepreneurs is observed, discussed, and celebrated. The inaugural event in 2014 was held in New York City at the United Nations, with additional events being held simultaneously in several other countries - in fact, Lionesses of Africa soft-launched on this day back in November 2014. Women’s Entrepreneurship Day was founded and implemented by Wendy Diamond as a global movement to celebrate and support female founders and shed light on some of their challenges. Forbes Magazine wrote that the intention was also “to mobilize a global network of female business owners, entrepreneurs and change makers who support and empower this community of women entrepreneurs and their businesses. The United Nations Foundation is a founding partner of the events. Lionesses of Africa will be celebrating Women’s Entrepreneurship Day and it’s own anniversary on this day, so watch this space.
