General Questions

How does a directory of woman-owned businesses help achieve gender equality and tackle the gender pay gap?

Women-Conscious Consumerism is an underutilized game-changer. When we, as consumers, spend our hard-earned money with women-owned businesses, we allow them to pay themselves their full worth, – same for their employees! We help them grow, reinvest in their product or service, and invest in their community.

Is this just for women?

Nope! If you believe in equality on every level, you'll want to be here. And, we want you here too.

How much does it cost to register my woman-owned business?

There are two options: Basic is free and displays core information about your business (Name, website, phone, city, state, and one tag for your business).

A MAIA Maven listing will get returned first in search results, lets you upload a photo to really stand out from the other listings, has an entire business detail page that’s all keyword searchable to help consumers find you easily when searching for your product or service. You can also select inclusive diversity filters and highlight certifications that you have for your business. Choose from $25, $50, $75 or $100/year for your MAIA Maven listing. There is no difference in service, you pay what you can afford at this stage in your business.

What's your definition of "woman-owned business"?

We define a woman-owned business as a female or non-binary individual owning 50% or more of the business. We are focused on gender equality at the highest levels of leadership so that women's perspectives are present in the product, the service and/or the solutions, to us that means a minimum of 50%. Balance among all things is critical.
