WorldWideWomen is a for-profit company on a social mission to move the needle toward gender parity. We know that this is a very big goal, but we believe that global connection and access to information and resources are powerful tools to help change the game for women, and that is what we are all about. We work toward this mission in three ways:
Global Resource Directory
The WorldWideWomen team researches and carefully vets valuable organizations, programs and services exclusively for women and assembles them into our easy-to-use directory — you can search across 10 categories from education and health and wellness to career and business support, motherhood, women’s rights and more and then filter by location. Our directory streamlines the search and quality checking process, and presents — FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER — the big picture of all that’s available to support our lives.
This new directory, created to support and promote women-owned businesses, features exceptional products and services created and offered by women. We intend for this to become a global movement bringing visibility and business to women entrepreneurs and we encourage all of our visitors to consciously buy from women-owned businesses whenever possible.
The WorldWideWomen Girls' Festival®
We bring our website to life through our amazing annual Girls' Festivals (hosted by the WorldWideWomen Foundation), a life-changing day of power and possibility for thousands of girls and their families. The Festivals feature an Expo of local organizations that support girls; all day performances; panel discussions; our own version of Shark Tank for girl entrepreneurs; workshops on topics from human trafficking and health & wellness, to leadership, advocacy, and coding; a STEAM-focused makers fair; sports and fitness arena; speed mentoring and more.
We plan to include many more services and member offerings to the platform as we grow and scale, so stay tuned. Our ultimate goal is to become the global hub where thousands — fingers crossed, millions — of women (and men) come every day to discover and share valuable resources, connect, and collaborate to solve issues impacting our global community of women. It gives us chills!
