“The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights” Gloria Steinem
Also called International Working Women’s Day, this once a year celebration harkens back to the turn of the last century, where it focused more on love, respect and appreciation of women in society. Today, it is more about highlighting women’s economic, political, and social contributions and acheivements. On Saturday, March 7th, we celebrate Women Entrepreneurs (along with women who have entrepreneurial ambitions) who have taken the road less traveled, and are forging our own personal path to economic independence partly through creating and fostering robust networks of support. This is a time to not just “network,” but to build networks. Come tell your story, and listen to others’ stories, and what we can do for one another.
Alyssa Thomas, the coordinator for Kiva Zip Philadelphia, will be there to present about Philadelphia’s new platform for crowdfunding 0% interest business loans for local women-owned businesses. Sadie will talk about the Tea Room’s work in bolstering the local, women-driven economy, and Ellen Sue Jacobson will talk about her work with Women to Women International, a platform for sponsoring business training for women around the globe. Finally, local author and life coach Krista Nelson will be handing out pocketfuls of wisdom and reading from her book, “Create your Dream Life in 6 Steps or Less.”
