International Women’s Day is celebrated all around the world. It’s a day dedicated to women that signifies social, political, creative, cultural, and economic achievement and accomplishment. This Women’s Day, in particular, was known as a strike that was named, “A Day Without a Woman.”
“This strike meant to portray how much value women provide to the economic area and work. It puts an emphasis on areas such as low wages and gender equality when it comes to pay. This is an extremely important issue to acknowledge because people and companies all around the world are constantly fighting to have gender equality through various ways: protests and gatherings,” says Loop. Entrepreneur.com writes about the March 8th strike without women, stating: “The Center for American Progress says it would cost the U.S. nearly $21 billion in gross domestic product.” If that doesn’t scream and make a statement on the influence of women in the world, we don’t know what does.
Loop has made it a goal to recognize empowering women the importance of International Women’s Day in our own way. Director and CEO of Loop, will be taking 10 women under her mentorship this year and turning them into rockstar business owners. In doing so, this will help these young women learn about becoming active advocates, leaders, and superwomen in the field of marketing, branding and managing their own business. They will learn the tactics of branding creatively and take the next step into being a new set of leaders for women in our field. CEO of Loop says, “Growing up and being surrounded by great teachers and mentors, I’ve learned a great deal and I am always grateful for that. I find that passing on and sharing what I have learned to a younger generation of women, will pave the way for new and fierce talent in the next coming years. In a world where we are actively fighting for equality — this project will not only let these young women entrepreneurs own their own company, but it is an effective way to beat unequal gender pay.” The CEO of Loop is looking forward to being a mentor for these women. It is is a goal for Loop to help women grow, as well as stand on their own economically, financially, and effectively.
As Sara Blakely (Founder of Spanx – World’s Youngest Female Billionaire) said, “Don’t be intimidated by what you don’t know. That can be your greatest strength and ensure that you do things differently from everyone else.” We know that the next line of our young women entrepreneurs will prosper fiercely!
