Arabian Organize Business Women's Day
Business Women's Day
The Alexandria Businesswomen’s Association (ABWA) and the Global Entrepreneurship Program (GEP) of USAID Egypt’s Competitiveness Program (ECP) hosted a conference on October 15 in Alexandria to recognize the importance of women as business developers and the emerging role of women entrepreneurs in the Egyptian workplace.
“The importance of women as entrepreneurs represents an untapped, valuable source of economic growth in Egypt,” says ECP Program Manager Douglas Tinsler.
This theme of the conference was, “The Inevitability of Change: Time of Change is a Time for Opportunity. The Businesswomen’s Day workshops offered a variety of topics to encourage Egyptian women to pursue business development opportunities led by successful Egyptian women entrepreneurs and international experts.
Since the 1940s, women have been playing an increasing larger role in the world of business. These days, women have practically equal footing to men when it comes to business and there are a large number of female company owners and bosses.
Business Women’s Day is celebrated all around the world on September 22nd to commemorate the day when Hilary A. Bufton Junior founded the American Business Women’s Association on September 22nd, 1949 along with three other business women from Kansas City.
This special day celebrates the contribution that women make in the business world and focuses on ways to give women more equality. The first ever Business Women’s Day was celebrated in 1983 when a joint Congressional resolution was passed.
A number of special events are held on this day, including seminars, meetings and other events that encourage business women from around the world to network and share their experiences..
