Cal Poly Pomona joins the United Nations and women in 144 countries worldwide to celebrate Women’s Entrepreneurship Day, a global movement to empower and engage women, of all ages, through the power of innovation and new venture creation. Women’s Entrepreneurship Day is a global event that inspires and empowers women. WED was founded to recognize the contributions of female founders and to highlight the challenges that they face as entrepreneurs. WED aims to mobilize women business owners, entrepreneurs and change agents to develop a global coalition of support, empowerment and mentorship for women worldwide.
The CPP WED event includes participation from a wide array of women including CPP students, faculty and staff, students from local high schools, CPP alumnae, entrepreneurs and change agents. The event includes a keynote address, a panel discussion featuring successful female entrepreneurs, a pitch event, and a Library exhibit focusing on CPP women. The event is sponsored by the Student Innovation Idea Lab (iLab), the College of Business Administration, the University Library, and the Women’s Resource Center.
