As a female entrepreneur for 33 years, who has built a company with more than hundreds of millions of dollars in actualized sales, I know firsthand, the challenges for women who enter the business world today. Over three decades ago, with no money or connections to speak of, I entered the business world. I lived with the daily struggle and had to withstand the biases against my gender which at that time, was the expected norm.
I know the difficulties every woman has, even today, in what continues to be a male-dominated work culture and business environment. I have a deep understanding of why, in 2018, there is the need for the #MeToo movement, even after so many years of advocacy and so many initiatives to empower women.
Apply now for the Dina Reis Scholarship for Entrepreneurial Women in Business. We believe every woman who has the aptitude and a yearning to create within a business discipline, should have the opportunity. It is my hope, that this scholarship will help to open doors so that she is able to succeed on an even playing field.
