AMERICAN BUSINESS WOMEN'S DAY

Every year since 1982, the United States has celebrated American Business Women's Day on September 22. This is a day set aside to honor and reflect upon the contributions and accomplishments of the millions of women in the work force and the millions of women business owners in the U.S.

Did you know American women entrepreneurs are among the happiest people in the world? Their happiness levels surge as they grow their businesses, according to the 2013 Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) U.S. Report. If you are one of these female business leaders, this is your day to celebrate!

Successful leaders are continually growing and learning from others. Below are a few annual gatherings focused on developing and empowering women in business. Let us know if you have any of your own recommendations to share.

> The American Business Women’s Association has a National Women’s Leadership conference in October.

> Another leadership and entrepreneurship gathering is the Emerging Women Live event October 13-16 in San Francisco.

> The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council also has an annual conference, as does the Women’s Business Development Center.
