SANTA ANA, CA. –– Wedo, an American and European communication and financial platform built for freelancers and entrepreneurs that integrates payment and banking, networking, and social tools all in one easy-to-use app, welcomes Pattie Howard as Chief of Diversity.

“I see Wedo as a living, breathing example of what diversity in the workforce should represent, not as a company aspiring to excel in its compliance with a ‘diversity policy’, or ‘commitment to inclusion,’” said Pattie Howard, Chief Diversity Officer at Wedo. “It is my goal to shine the brightest light possible on the ideals embodied within each person that represent the ultimate success of the company.”

Howard began her tenure with Wedo in 2020 as a member of the board of advisors. She has released two albums with major record labels and owns her own full service entertainment company, PH Balanced Music. Howard is also known for singing background for many major artists, including Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, and Diana Ross, among many others, and she is credited on dozens of Gold and Platinum recordings encompassing artists from almost every genre.

“It is my belief that equality must become a collective consciousness as a state of being,” added Howard. “Wedo will become the number one app of its kind because it is founded on this principle of equality and its mission is to allow anyone, anywhere, an opportunity to earn and succeed.”

Wedo is an American and European social communication SaaS with an integrated banking tool serving the $4T global freelancer, coaching, and startup market with an aim to supercharge their business. By providing all the tools entrepreneurs need within one easy-to-use app, Wedo is removing the financial and technical barriers to entry by bringing together the tools for the gig economy – including live streaming video, in-stream payments, webinars, and booking tools with banking services – and setting businesses up for success. Founded by former freelancer Indiana Gregg at the beginning of the COVID pandemic, Wedo is on a mission to help more people help more people and make entry into the business world affordable, accessible and seamless for entrepreneurs worldwide.
