Thank you to everyone who shifted their purchasing power to support women-owned businesses. Our commitment to building an inclusive economy, shopping with intention, and supporting women has been a core value of ours from day one and drives the work we do at West Tenth.
We continue to celebrate and support women to be active participants in the economy by championing a network of women leaders, innovators, and entrepreneurs to initiate startups, drive economic expansion, support one another, and enhance their communities.
- We mobilized individuals to join the #TisHerSeason pledge and rallied communities to shift over 5 million dollars towards women-owned businesses.
- Our #TisHerSeason Holiday Guide was used by over 15k people
- Five entrepreneurs were selected to receive a comprehensive package of professional services to help them grow their business! While we received so many incredible nominations the winners were selected at random and we're thrilled to feature them below. Scroll down to see details.
The season never ends, continue the spirit and use your purchasing power year-round! Changing where you spend your money is the most direct way to enact change and exercise your power to have real impact. Every time you shop for a gift, pick out home decor, or hire a professional service provider, you have the ability to make a meaningful choice to support a woman owned business.
