 ABOUT

In recognition of the significant impact women business owners have made on the Los Angeles economy and quality of life despite significant obstacles, Mayor Eric Garcetti and the Los Angeles City Council declared November 19 to be Women's Entrepreneurship Day in Los Angeles. The goal of the LA WED Celebration is to inspire, empower, and catalyze diverse, yet like-minded individuals, agencies, and organizations to help women-owned businesses realize their full potential in Los Angeles and throughout the world. All are welcome to join in the celebration and partake in the resources available. It is a unique opportunity for current and aspiring entrepreneurs to create meaningful connections, get expert advice and information, and gather the support and resources necessary to set themselves up for success.
