The Rise to the Challenge Awards recognize women business owners with the most compelling stories of overcoming challenges to gaining market access–going beyond borders and breaking down barriers. Winners were chosen by a jury of representatives from a select number of the world’s largest buying organizations. Global Award Winner receives a USD5,000 prize and global exposure through a new global WEConnect International advertising campaign. Nine Sector Award Winners gain social media exposure through WEConnect International’s global channels.
To celebrate International Women’s Day 2022, WEConnect International highlighted a woman business owner from WECommunity daily throughout the month of March. These women are breaking barriers and going beyond borders. We are thrilled to share their stories!
