I’ll admit, I didn’t. I never heard of this day before. Until today. Not sure if I feel bad for NOT knowing or disappointed that it’s not highly promoted as I’m sure this is a day many business women would love to celebrate! I didn’t notice a lot of mentions of it on social media in my business circle either, so I did a post about it to make some of the ladies aware. Apparently it came to be due to the founding of the American Business Women’s Association:
September 22 marks the 1949 founding date of the American Business Women’s Association, the mission of which is “to bring together businesswomen of diverse occupations and to provide opportunities for them to help themselves and others grow personally and professionally through leadership; education, networking support and national recognition”.
Promoted by the hashtag #AmericanBusinessWomensDay.
It’s always a good thing to celebrate business women whether they own their own or out their in the workforce. We work hard for the money and being a women in business is challenging but so rewarding too.
So next year, hopefully there will be more than 467 search results on this hashtag. Yep only 467. For a national holiday celebrating American Business Women. I’ll do my part in spreading awareness.
Until then, to all my American Business Women out there, enjoy your day!
