BPWI NEWS: Women's Entrepreneurship and Trade

06 Apr 2024 12:42 PM | Jean Murray (Administrator)

BPW International is working with UN Women to establish the first network of business incubators and start-up centres with a gender-specific dimension. We will be the first international women's organisation with a global network of start-up centres for female entrepreneurs, each managed by our clubs.  BPW Australia clubs will be able to be involved.

BPW International has signed a GLOBAL partnership agreement, the Memorandum of Understanding MoU  with UN Women for the coming years. Global means that wherever we have clubs, we will be a partner and key player in working with UN Women on the ground. The content of the partnership agreement relates to WITH Women’s Entrepreneurship and Trade.

This partnership agreement focuses on the promotion of women's economic empowerment and is in line with Sustainable Development Goal SDG #5: Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.

In the first 6 months, a train-the-trainer program will be implemented to train women entrepreneurs, members of BPW, to become professional coaches (with certification). They will then work with the women on site and support them with the topics they need, be it accounting, marketing, language, or  dealing with banks and other investors.
