This year’s Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) highlights the theme “Women First, Prosperity for All” and focuses on supporting women entrepreneurs and fostering economic growth globally. The increased participation of women and marginalized groups in the economy is a valuable source of expertise and leadership for businesses, but also empowers and strengthens families and communities. Marginalized groups, particularly women, also reinvest a large portion of their incomes locally, which advances economic growth and stability. Are you a woman entrepreneur or are you interested in promoting diversity in business? In the lead up to GES 2017, join us on October 26 at 7 a.m. EDT (11:00 UTC) for a “Diversity in Business” interactive webchat! Hear panelists discuss unique challenges women entrepreneurs face and strategies for success.
