Qurate Retail Group Employees Take on the International Women’s Day call to “Dream, Dare, Do”
This international Women’s Day, Nest is joining forces once again with Qurate Retail Group to celebrate women entrepreneurs who not only dream, but dare to live and follow their dreams by taking action.
Qurate Retail Group (QRG) employees are also playing a role in the call to “Dream, Dare, Do.” In 2019, Nest matched 13 QRG team members with four female-led,US-based social enterprises committed to women’s employment in crafts including quilting, sewing, and screen printing. QRG team members spent two weeks on-site to provide more than 1,700 total hours of pro bono consulting to participating female business leaders.
When asked how she “dreams, dares, and does,” Stephanie Giddens (pictured above), founder of Guild-member business Vickery Trading Company who received a QRG fellow in 2019, says, “I get the opportunity to give women their very first job, their very first paycheck and often times celebrate with them at their very first graduation. Nothing compares to the joy of watching a life change for the better. If you can use your talent for the good of others, go for it with your whole heart. It’s worth far more than any paycheck,”
Continuing our ongoing partnership, HSN and QVC have committed to donating a minimum of $50,000 to Nest this International Women’s Day. Female entrepreneurs will be celebrated throughout the month, with a full day of programs and products by and for women on air March 8th. Customers will be invited to donate to Nest and all donations will go towards ensuring that Nest’s female artisans have access to the professional training, resources, and infrastructure they need to thrive.
Join us on March 8th as we are invite women everywhere to share on social media how they dream, dare and do using #dreamdaredo.
