Imagine una comunidad de personas, de más de 10 millones y creciendo, en la que cada persona es pionera, vanguardista, innovadora y visionaria.
Estas son las mujeres empresarias de hoy, quienes representan casi la mitad de todos los propietarios de pequeñas empresas en Estados Unidos, y que siguen abriendo negocios en cifras récord.
Las mujeres están creando, desarrollando y dirigiendo las empresas más dinámicas de Estados Unidos. Por el camino, con frecuencia adoptando grandes riesgos y contra todo pronóstico, han roto moldes y estereotipos arraigados, y han redefinido el significado de liderazgo y éxito.
No hace mucho, las mujeres propietarias de negocios eran prácticamente invisibles y trabajaban en una cierta oscuridad. Hoy, sus cifras indican que se trata de un grupo emergente, poderoso y con cada vez mayor fuerza política y económica, algo que será esencial para perfilar un futuro aún más brillante para Estados Unidos.
Y es esta comunidad a la que se consagra Enterprising Women. Nuestra misión es reflejar y amplificar las voces de las mujeres empresarias; compartir sus historias de riesgo y éxito; relatar su cada vez mayor influencia y poder políticos, económicos y sociales; celebrar sus triunfos; aportar soluciones a sus problemas; e identificar y promover una nueva generación de líderes, y de modelos y mentores de las líderes del mañana.
Un cordial lugar para reunirse
Cada número de la revista Enterprising Women es como reunirse con un viejo amigo. Brindamos un cordial lugar para reunirse, un foro público y una plataforma internacional para los asuntos de vital importancia a los que se enfrentan los negocios y las vidas diarias de las mujeres —a partir de la perspectiva y las experiencias únicas de las mujeres empresarias. Escrita por mujeres empresarias para mujeres empresarias, somos la voz de este grupo de mujeres —que se atreven a pensar a lo grande, a dar el salto y a perseguir sus sueños.
Descubra un poderoso mercado emergente
Como impulsoras de la nueva economía, las propietarias de negocios crean más puestos de trabajo en EE. UU. que todas las empresas Fortune 500 combinadas. Una de cada 11 mujeres adultas en EE. UU. es empresaria, y cada minuto, cinco mujeres abren un negocio en este país.
Enterprising Women se centra en este mercado dinámico y creciente, ofreciendo una revista que se dirige directamente a las mujeres empresarias. ¿Quiere tener acceso a las propietarias de negocios más importantes del país? No hay mejor lugar para hacerlo que en la revista Enterprising Women.

WASHINGTON, DC — Enterprising Women has announced its partnership with the “Million Women Mentors” (MWM) initiative, which was launched January 8, 2014 during National Mentoring Month at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. The initiative will support the engagement of one million science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) mentors – male and female – to increase the interest and confidence of girls and young women to pursue and succeed in STEM degrees and careers.
As a part of the Million Women Mentors initiative, the Enterprising Women Foundation, together with Enterprising Women magazine, will host the first annual Enterprising Women Foundation National Mentorship Luncheon. STEM Connector and the National Girls Collaborative Project are supporting partners for the luncheon, which will be held January 24 from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. Additional supporting partners include: Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP); the Women Presidents’ Organization (WPO); the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO); the Institute for Economic Empowerment of Women (IEEW); Count Me In (CMI); and the Women’s Leadership Exchange (WLE).
In the past 10 years, growth in STEM jobs has been three times greater than that of non-STEM jobs. Today, 80% of the fastest growing occupations in the United States depend on mastery of mathematics and knowledge and skills in hard sciences. While women comprise 48% of the U.S. workforce, just 24% are in STEM fields, a statistic that has held constant for nearly the last decade. While 75% of all college students are women and students of color, they represent only 45% of STEM degrees earned each year. Too many of these young women begin in a STEM degree program, but leave those degree paths despite good academic standing, often citing uncomfortable classroom experiences and a disconcerting climate. Even when women earn a STEM degree, they are less likely than their male counterparts to work in a STEM field, despite the fact that STEM jobs pay more and have a lower wage gap (92 cents on a dollar versus 75 cents in other fields).
Enterprising Women has a strong interest in encouraging girls to consider entrepreneurship in STEM-based industries or fields, according to Monica Smiley, publisher/CEO of Enterprising Women and founder/president of the Enterprising Women Foundation. “Many of the women on the Enterprising Women Advisory Board have built strong, innovative businesses in STEM-based fields, and we are extremely interested in providing mentors and role models for young women who want to follow that path,” Smiley said.
Million Women Mentors is a collective effort of more than 40 non-profit, media, educational, and governmental industry partners and nine corporate sponsors.

Enterprising Women Foundation Mentoring Initiative
The Enterprising Women Foundation Mentoring Program provides high school girls with an opportunity to meet and connect with outstanding women entrepreneurs in their community at a local event—a breakfast, lunch or afternoon forum—designed to recognize their leadership potential, inspire them to dream big, and focus on the next steps to realize their potential as entrepreneurs or leaders in STEM-based fields and other industries.
Enterprising Women is a partner in the Million Women Mentors Project and has committed to bringing a focus on opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) to high school girls who may not have role models or mentors. Over the next 20 years, STEM-based industries will lead the way and participation among girls is still lagging in technology, engineering, and related fields. With its strong network of successful women entrepreneurs, Enterprising Women is uniquely positioned to connect outstanding women entrepreneurial leaders with high school girls, many of whom will be the first generation in their families to attend college or may be from at-risk communities where mentoring options are limited or not available.
In communities where mentorship programs do exist, the Enterprising Women Foundation Program will provide existing mentoring programs for high school young women with a unique resource to enhance their programming. Participants will have the opportunity to meet and learn from highly successful women entrepreneurs and corporate leaders from a wide range of industries—many from STEM-based fields.
