It's Women's History Month and Woman-Owned Is Coming to Your Walmart!11:23 PM
Did you know?
- Women-owned businesses contribute over $1.3 trillion dollars to the US economy
- Women are responsible for over 80 percent of the consumer decisions globally
- The majority of Walmart's 250 billion customers globally are women
So, it always pleases me to see big companies aligning with the goals of women like me who have dreams to do something to support themselves and their families -- especially when those women create something that can change the world!
Walmart launched their global Women's Economic Empowerment initiative 3 years ago, with the goal to make lives better for all women -- everywhere. One way they do that is by committing to buy $20B worth of merchandise from women-owned companies over the next couple of years. And while they have a ways to go to make that happen, they are starting strong by featuring 6 different products manufactured by women-owned businesses!
- Milo’s Sweet Tea
- Budget Saver Popsicles
- CLR Remover
- Smart & Sexy Bras
- Child of Mine by Carter's Infant Socks
- Hefty Trashcans
*(So, what makes a women-owned company? A company must be at least 51% owned by women and ran by women.)
