Hello Beautiful Ladies! As you know, International Women's Day just pass on March 8, 2002, but we know we celebrate women every single day! Speaking of celebrating…there is no better way to celebrate than to feature the woman who started Women’s Entrepreneurship Day, Wendy Diamond truly an entrepreneur to her core! In fact, I was honored to have interviewed her on the Opportunity Knocks Podcast.
Wendy Diamond is a Social Entrepreneur, Impact Investor, Humanitarian, Endangered Animal and Rescue Advocate, World’s Premiere Pet Lifestyle expert, Best-Selling Author, and TV Personality. Wendy revolutionized the pet industry by creating premiere pop culture benefits to endorse animal adoption, advocacy, and fundraising. Wendy learned at a young age after experiencing a personal tragedy, that there is a positive silver lining to everything! Although one might not always realize the benefits immediately coming from a tragic situation, it will be revealed in one year, five years, or even a decade. And when it appears, it does so as a bright shining triumph, Wendy is the living proof! If you haven’t yet, check out my blog on obstacles and opportunities!
I was so lucky to have met Wendy through Katie Chin, who is also a guest on the Opportunity Knocks podcast as well as a Celebrity Chef, Caterer, Award-Winning Cookbook Author, Food Blogger, and Culinary Ambassador to the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation! Katie has a passion for Asian food, co-hosted the national PBS cooking series, and has written numerous award-winning cookbooks.
I am delighted to partner with Wendy and so many other amazing women to celebrate Women Entrepreneurs on Friday, May 20 at the United Nations our annual #WEDO SUMMIT! Will take place in New York City! We welcome YOU to join our amazing list of CEOs, Philanthropists, Family Offices, Business Leaders, Women Entrepreneurs, Changemakers, Royal Families, C Suite Executives, Impact Investors, Celebrities/Influencers, UN Dignitaries and Government Officials who are supporting our mission on this very special day in May! Our agenda will focus on the impact of Disruptive Technologies, the escalating evolution of Web 3.0, and the pivotal role women play!
In 2013, Wendy was inspired to launch Women’s Entrepreneurship Day Organization (WEDO) in 2013 after volunteering in Honduras with the Adelante Foundation, an organization that provides microcredit to locally impoverished women.
WEDO 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, WEDO builds and catalyzes the vital networks of like-minded individuals and organizations that women business leaders need to realize their full potential and change the world.
As you know, I am an advocate for women empowerment. Which is one of the main reasons I have created the MembHership – a space for women to empower women, learn from each other, and to discover their own purpose. On November 19th, 2014, Wendy launched Women’s Entrepreneurship Day (WED) at the United Nations and celebrated in 144 countries. The U.S. House of Representatives annually recognizes the WEDO movement on November 19th as “A Day in Honor of Women Entrepreneurs” under the leadership of Congresswoman Grace Meng.
