October is National Women’s Small Business Month and we couldn’t be more delighted to celebrate at Walker’s Legacy and the Walker’s Legacy Foundation
At Walker’s Legacy, we are on a mission to build the largest platform for professional and entrepreneurial women. We exist to inspire, equip, and engage through thought-provoking content, educational programming and a global community.
This month represents a time to celebrate the achievements of the more than 10 million women-owned firms in the US, to elevate the agenda of policy and programs that can help to create the next 10 million firms and to highlight the important role that women businesses play in the US economy. During this time, we join many to bring awareness to intersectional diversity amongst multicultural entrepreneurial women, the fastest growing entrepreneurial segment in the nation.
Did you know that of the 10 million women-led firms in the United States, minority women-owned firms represented 3.8 million or roughly 40%? And, that these firms account for $148 billion in revenues?
In honor of National Women’s Small Business Month, we invite you to join in our excitement by attending one of our six (6) upcoming #WLPower25 Award Receptions honoring women leading in business and beyond happening across the nation beginning this month.
Please stay tuned for more exciting announcements about our work to empower women to be released this month.
Your friend in entrepreneurship,
Natalie Madeira Cofield
