Co-written with Taryn Bird, Senior Manager of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Business Civic Leadership Center‘s Global Corporate Citizenship Program.

In an age of unparalleled opportunity for women, female empowerment has become a diverse proposition. Women are changing the world in business, government, the NGO world, and media. And they are re-defining what it means to be entrepreneurial in every field, from starting their own businesses and social ventures, through being successful corporate intrapreneurs, to innovating in other ways that give women a voice and a equal role in the society.

The power of social media, and in particular Twitter, has allowed these empowered women to share not just their big ideas, but the daily details and information sources they rely on to advance the issues they care about. As we get ready to celebrate International Women’s Day, let’s harness the power of social media to connect with such women and share their work.

The Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) and the US Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Business Civic Leadership Center (BCLC) have complimentary missions when it comes to women’s economic empowerment, and together we want to highlight twenty women on Twitter who stand out as the articulate, informed voices of the future. The list is certainly not exhaustive but these women offer great insights on how to harness entrepreneurial ideas to empower women, and who themselves represent the great things women can achieve.

Stay tuned as we talk more about women’s empowerment and entrepreneurship this week at @CIPEGlobal and @ChamberBCLC!
