This is an excellent article by Tory Burch that strongly resonate with me.
A brief summary:
Women entrepreneurs see the world through a different lense and, in turn, do things differently.
Yet they face a huge equality gap: while they own almost 30% of American firms, they employ only 6% of the workforce, and account for barely 4% of business revenues.
Narrowing the gender gap in employment would increase global income per person by as much as 20% by 2030.
The Tory Burch Foundation supports the economic empowerment of women entrepreneurs. It sees three top priorities for women entrepreneurs:
– access to capital
– mentoring and support
– entrepreneural education
