Part 2…the Fierce & Fab Female Founder Series: GIVING BACK
We asked this simple question of sheBOOM readers…
What types of businesses are women starting?
That led to the idea of launching our “theme week” series. Every week we’ll be profiling one industry and the women who are shaping it. We started with food. Our readers ate the concept up.
To honor Giving Tuesday (which has its own fascinating back story), we reached out via HARO and ProfNet to our online PR communities. We asked for stories of female founders who either launched their own non-profits or who built social responsibility into their companies’ missions. Within 24 hours we got more than 50 terrific responses!
In keeping with the mission of #GivingTuesday we’ll be sharing many of those stories over the next seven days. (Please subscribe to sheBOOM on our home page so you get our end-of-week wrap-up sheBOOMminute!) We can’t possibly cover everyone this week, but we’ll be sure to work a “giving” angle into our other industry features over the days/weeks/months ahead.
So, please keep those stories of innovation, entrepreneurship and GIVING coming…all year-round! Share with us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
