50+% of the people who own or co-own a company are women
The SHEowns mark is designed to recognize and highlight companies that are equally or majority owned by women.
Even though ~49% of all businesses in the United States are either majority owned or equally co-owned by women, those businesses only see ~4% of revenues and hire ~8% of employees. The good news is that by supporting those ~49% of businesses, we can increase those percentages and, it is estimated, increase the global GDP by approximately $12 trillion a year.
People are looking to contribute to that growth by supporting woman-owned businesses. Having that information at point of sale or wherever consumers interact with your brand is more important than ever. Getting Certified SHEowns allows companies to speak to belief-driven buyers in an easily recognizable and verified form - making it easy for people to identify and support businesses owned by women, and ultimately impact the global economy.
That is why we created the SHEowns mark
Did you know?
The SHE Mark is intentionally inclusive of gender equally co-owned businesses because we believe that men are our partners in the movement towards global economic gender equality.
