Celebrate International Women’s Day w/ the EBW Foundation’s #WatchHerRise Global Entrepreneur Series
Millions of people around the world will be celebrating International Women’s Day this Friday. Already celebrities like Kelly Clarkson have launched a campaign asking the question, “Who put the #HerInHERO for you?” LinkedIn is encouraging companies to #balanceforbetter by ensuring a gender-balanced talent pool for the more than 20 million open jobs on their network. At EBW Foundation, we are celebrating International Women’s Day by spotlighting specific women entrepreneurs around the world who are reshaping the global landscape and moving the needle on women empowerment through our #WatchHerRise entrepreneur series.
Dr. Anna McCoy, CEO of EBW Foundation, and Shaillee Chopra, Chief Global Strategy Officer for EBW, Inc. and Principal of Lumina Health Partners, will be hosting a segment during “Friday Live with Anna” (@drannamccoy) dedicated to women entrepreneurs selected from several countries, including Nigeria, South Africa, Zambia, UK, Aruba, and the United States. Normally during the Friday LIVE Facebook broadcast, Anna provides a platform for entrepreneurs to connect, learn, collaborate, and promote their products. But beginning March 8 and continuing through the month of March, the #WatchHerRise entrepreneur series segment will highlight just some of the amazing accomplishments made by women every day around the globe.
Anna believes that women leaders are the key to getting our global, social, economic and community health turned around. According to Ingrid Vanderveldt, founder and CEO for Empowering a Billion Women by 2020 (EBW Inc.), “Women are known to give back about 90 percent of their earnings to the health and education of their families and communities.” It has been EBW’s ongoing mission through its programs to empower a billion women to find solutions to the limiting situations in their lives while also creating their own pathways toward financial sustainability.
International Women’s Day is a holiday dedicated to uplifting women, promoting gender parity, and honoring the social, economic, cultural, and political accomplishments of women. The #WatchHerRise entrepreneur series throughout the month of March is an opportunity to highlight the small and global impacts that women are making every day around the world.
Join us in celebrating women on March 8, 15, 22, and 29 at 10 a.m. on Facebook by watching “Friday LIVE with Anna” and the #WatchHerRise entrepreneur series. By acknowledging the accomplishments of some extremely amazing women, we hope to inspire millions of others.
The series will kick off with Ingrid Vanderveldt, the Founder and CEO of Empowering a Billion Women by 2020.
