ChileForum2016Group(November 3, 2016) Last week WEConnect International in Chile hosted its annual forum in Santiago. The event was well-attended by approximately 130 people including government officials, corporate representatives and women business owners.  We had the pleasure of hosting Gonzalo Gebara from Walmart, Andrea Goya from Sodexo, Javier Macchi from EY and Lorena Parra from GSD/ Merck, on our corporate panel. Their contributions to the discussion highlighted the work that WEConnect International is doing in Chile and showcased their corporations' commitment to supplier diversity. We also offered a matchmaking session where more than 50 women business owners were able to connect directly with buyers from Walmart, Sodexo, Pfizer, Monsanto, and GSD/Merck.

With the US Ambassador in attendance, WEConnect International gathered over 100 women business owners and business leaders in Santiago to network and discuss the landscape for women entrepreneurs in Chile.
