Gayle Waldron Recognized for Economically Empowering Women Business Owners
Washington DC (August 9, 2011) -- Gayle Waldron, President of top international training firm The Management Edge, has been selected by The International Alliance for Women (TIAW) as one of the 2011 TIAW World of Difference 100 Awardees. Along with fellow award recipients, Waldron will be recognized October 27, 2011 as part of the TIAW Global Forum at the Canadian Embassy in Washington, DC.
Each year, this award recognizes up to 100 extraordinary women from around the world who have contributed to the economic empowerment of women. Recipients are selected from leaders of communities, organizations, corporations, regions or countries who have taken action to support women's economic empowerment and advancement in society and in business.
Waldron has applied her 17 years of experience as a federal government contractor to help economically empower women business owners through her advocacy in organizations like National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) and Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP).
She has been instrumental in helping both the Small Business Administration (SBA) and Congress understand underlying issues women in business face and has helped develop strategies to combat these inequities. Waldron was one of many women who dedicated the past 10 years to working toward the passage of SBA's Women-Owned Small Business Federal Contract Program.
Waldron also actively mentors women business owners and contributes to global organizations that provide micro-financing for women business owners in developing countries.
