It’s not just any other Wednesday — it’s Buy Women Owned Day!
In the spirit of the International Women’s Day #ChooseToChallenge theme and as we continue to celebrate Women’s History Month, we are issuing the following challenge to our WBENC network and beyond:
Buy at least ONE product from a women-owned business on Wednesday, March 17
Share your purchase on social media using the hashtag #BuyWomenOwned
Why Buy Women Owned
The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a huge toll on women’s economic progress and small businesses overall, widening existing economic disparities. In these challenging times, women business owners need our support. As a consumer, that means consciously seeking out products from women-owned businesses.
