  • Would you like to have the chance to receive complimentary registration for International Day in 2018 in Detroit?

If so, please submit a dynamic photo of YOU in action managing your business by May 31, 2017!

To launch the competition: WEConnect International will select the top four finalists from entries submitted by certified women’s business enterprises by May 31, 2017. Those finalists will be recognized at WEConnect International Day in Las Vegas. After the event, they will compete for the chance to receive free registration for International Day 2018 in Detroit.

To decide who will win the grand prize, the four photos will be integrated into our Giving Tuesday global campaign, which is on November 28th. The global community will be directed to our page to vote on their preferred submissions by submitting a donation on their behalf. There will be two finalists selected, one that receives the most individual donations and one that receives the most donated funds overall.

All finalists will receive global visibility and awareness through the campaign and will be featured on our website. The two top finalists will receive free registration to WEConnect International Day in Detroit in 2018, be highlighted as the finalists, and be personally introduced to corporate members by the CEO of WEConnect International.*
