Diversity Marketplace: 100 Vendors in 100 Days from 100+ Women Who Care Halifax

The Talent Trust was recently named the recipient of 100+ Women Who Care Halifax's donations at their 42nd meeting.  This generous donation of over $10,000 will be used to establish new scholarships for emerging artists in the Halifax region.  Read the press release here.

100+ Women Who Care Halifax not only supports important community work with their quarterly donations, but also through promotion.  Their Diversity Marketplace is a free online business directory for BIPOC, 2SLGBTQA+, and/or disabled entrepreneurs who live in Nova Scotia and are at least 50 per cent female-owned.  Their goal is to amplify underrepresented voices and businesses, and champion equal opportunities for all. The Diversity Marketplace provides a space where conscious consumers can shop the true tapestry of Nova Scotia and paves the way for a brighter, more inclusive community and future.

From the 100+WWCH website: 

"We recognize that many entrepreneurs disproportionately do not have the same visibility. We would like to help close that gap.  We also know that people want to be supportive but don’t always know how. 
The Diversity Marketplace provides a place where people can speak with their wallets, and they can shop with intention. The trend in conscious consumerism means shoppers deliberately make purchasing decisions that will have a positive social, economic, and environmental impact."

The current categories for businesses are: Fashion, Food & Beverage, Beauty, Jewelry & Accessories, Visual Artists, Books, Handcrafts & Home D├ęcor, Arts, Culture & Entertainment, Health & Fitness, Business and Professional Services, Real Estate & Construction, and Travel & Tourism.  There are plans to expand this to include more categories in the future.

100WWCH has launched the 100 Vendors in 100 Days Challenge, where their goal is to reach 100 vendors with this incredible initiative that is dedicated to amplifying underrepresented voices and championing equal opportunities.  The Diversity Marketplace aims to showcase the exceptional products and services of female-led diverse entrepreneurs while fostering a brighter, more inclusive community and future.
