International Women’s Entrepreneurship Day has been designated by the United Nations as the nineteenth of November every year. The first day was held on November 19, 2014, and was observed in 144 countries that year. Fortune Magazine described it as “a global movement to celebrate and support female founders and shed light on some of their challenges.” Forbes Magazine wrote that the day was meant “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.”
In celebration of this Women’s Entrepreneurship Day, MET Community US is convening a dynamic series of panels on November 16, 2016, as part of its global “ForoMET” series of events. We are thrilled you are joining us!
