“Too much of our world was designed without women in mind – and without women involved. Even today, inequality and exclusion still hold women back. As women, it’s up to us to #BreakTheBias. Whether you’re an established business owner or an entrepreneur just starting out, remember that there’s value in your unique perspectives and that your voice matters.
It’s critical that we don’t lose sight of the importance of being a collective and not only supporting but amplifying other women. Raising each other up and channelling the power of collaboration is truly how we’ll effect change. When we support women entrepreneurs, we’re not only supporting the economy – we’re making a difference in people’s lives and driving change within our communities, society, and the world. Let’s all feel energized about how our diverse backgrounds can unlock powerful ideas and how we can reshape the way our world is constructed.“
