The professional collective for women of color is missioned to establish economic equity for multicultural women in business and entrepreneurship
Today, Walker’s Legacy, a business professional collective for women, and its sister organization, the Walker’s Legacy Foundation, a non-profit organization missioned to engage, equip, and inspire multicultural women in business and entrepreneurship, recognizes both International Women’s Day and a Day Without Women.
Advancing the energy that surrounded the Women’s March on Washington, A Day Without Women further promotes the importance of economic and social parity in areas such as civil rights and equal pay. Organizations, ranging from academic institutions to non-profits, join today in solidarity to recognize the imbalance that still exists among women.
Joining in this spirit of equality and as a partnering organization for the Women’s March, Walker’s Legacy further commits to champion the agenda of supporting, celebrating, and understanding women in business and beyond. Inspired by Madam C.J. Walker, the organization does this by publishing original content and research, hosting signature programs and events, and Walker’s Legacy Foundation programs such as Mom’s Who Hustle: A Financial Planning and Entrepreneurship Program for Millennials.
“Our work is committed to the empowerment and success of women, and today we note the charge to continue to do more to ensure that progress is made” Natalie M. Cofield, Founder and CEO, Walker’s Legacy and Walker’s Legacy Foundation.
First acknowledged in the early 1900’s, International Women’s Day prompts a global state of unity, celebration, advocacy and action to dissolve the socio-economic challenges disparities that exist among women.
