The first national business magazine for women, PINK has an empowering message and insightful content.
"PINK exists to promote this new generation of women who are making a significant impact on the world through their work and their lives-while being true to themselves.
PINK´s time has come. A record number of women now lead top companies in America and millions more (15.6 million) have started businesses of their own-at a rate twice that of men. Women are excelling in other fields, too-from medicine to education, philanthropy, politics and the arts. Women now wield trillions of dollars and account for more than 80 percent of all consumer spending.
It is time these influencers had a national magazine that addresses their unique needs, interests, ambitions and accomplishments; while providing a road map for others who aspire to do great things with their lives too."
