Empowering women in technology and business

Dell is committed to accelerating the increasingly powerful role that women play in driving global economic growth. Women share a unique and approach to business; they are using innovative technology to reach customers and utilize data in unprecedented ways. Women especially understand that it’s not the technology itself that is important, but what connections, solutions and changes it enables you to make.

Through the Dell Women’s Entrepreneur Network, Dell is connecting female entrepreneurs across the globe with networks, sources of capital, knowledge and technology, giving them the power to do more. You can join other female business leaders from around the globe as we celebrate the impact of women-owned businesses on the global economy.

    Supplier Diversity Overview

    Dell's key differentiator is our direct-to-customer business model — building superior, direct customer relationships with an increasingly diverse marketplace.

The Dell Women’s Entrepreneur Network is more than an annual event; it’s a community of women entrepreneurs from over eleven countries collaborating to grow their businesses and connecting through social platforms including LinkedIn, Twitter, Flickr and Storify. In between the annual event, intimate networking events are hosted by Dell and attended by women business owners in major cities around the world.
Pay it Forward

Dell’s Pay it Forward initiative is conceived as a movement that harnesses the power of Dell’s women’s networks to positively impact the future of women’s entrepreneurship. The campaign works on the premise that if each of us helps a woman business owner advance - and that woman, in turn, supports another - then we can create a global community of women supporting women and our initial efforts can be greatly amplified. By leveraging our network of around 10,000 women today, we hope to track support for 1m women entrepreneurs by the end of 2015.
