Recognized annually on March 8th, International Women’s Day is a day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women across the globe. To commemorate International Women’s Day 2020, Jack Daniel’s GENTLEMAN JACK is celebrating women’s achievements and raising awareness on gender equality by bringing back SPIRITUOUS, an event series honoring women leading in entrepreneurship, community change, innovation and cultural advocacy. The 2020 iteration of the series will hit 20 cities across the nation, with all events taking place on International Women’s Day.
According to The 2019 State of Women-Owned Businesses Report, between 2014 and 2019, nationally the number of women-owned businesses climbed 21 percent totaling nearly 13 million, employment grew by 8 percent to 9.4 million, and revenue rose 21 percent to $1.9 trillion. “Gentleman Jack Tennessee Whiskey is created by women and men who are experts in their craftsmanship at the Jack Daniel Distillery,” said Mary Beth O’Mara, Gentleman Jack Senior Brand Manager. “Gentleman Jack Spirituous will celebrate the accomplishments female leaders and change agents have within their careers and communities while increasing visibility around the successes of building a gender equal world.”
Gentleman Jack’s SPIRITUOUS highlights the impact women have in their respective communities – sharing their stories while recognizing their everyday achievements. Each event is designed to fit the uniqueness of its city. Select markets will offer a variety of professional development services for attendees, and all guests can expect an evening of inspiration, empowerment, food, music and cocktails – developed by some of the most influential female mixologists.
