Cherie BlairWEConnect International is thrilled to partner with the Cherie Blair Foundation for Women to further our joint mission to empower women entrepreneurs around the globe to reach their fullest potential. The Cherie Blair Foundation for Women (or, you could simplify to the Foundation) is driven by a vision of a world where women have equal opportunities and the capability, confidence, and capital necessary to create thriving enterprises and have stronger voices in their community. Together with WEConnect International, our partnership will open doors for our certified women business enterprises by providing complementary training, mentorship, and knowledge sharing opportunities while utilizing shared resources to drive market-access opportunity and increase visibility. 

The Cherie Blair Foundation for Women supports women entrepreneurs in low and middle-income countries to build the capabilities, confidence and networks they need to become successful business owners. Driven by their vision of a world where women have equal opportunities to establish and grow enterprises, they empower women to bring about a brighter future for themselves and their communities. Working in collaboration with non-profit, private and public sector partners, they have supported over 141,000 women from 105 countries across all of their programs.

By combining mentoring with technology, their Mentoring Women in Business Program is pioneering a way to support women entrepreneurs through cross-border, personalised mentoring and online training. Across physical and cultural distances, people from around the world are coming together to change lives. WEConnect International is honoured to nominate women entrepreneurs for this distinctive program. To learn more about the Chair Blair Foundation for Women, visit their website.
