On March 16, 2o11 more than 300 people( investors, entrepreneurs and other influential peeps) gathered at the governor hotels. 24Notion were there to take part of the celebration on the day of Angel Oregon 2011. We are the proud patron sponsored for OEN AO 2011 again this year. The room is filled with many entrepreneur enthusiasts but short on women attendance. The ratio 85% of male dominance and 15% women says it all where we need more Women entrepreneurs to take part of this day. Glad that Soothie suckers( women launched start up concept) won as the concept stage winner.

Gender equality has been hot topics for years. I’m passionate about this topic that would create public outreach for women’s right that will results in women empowerment. Whether it is a workforce relation issue, violence against women and girls, hunger and poverty and access to educations for women and young girls. This is where UN Women brings forth this issues and to take actions together to make a difference.
