In Peru, WEConnect International is working with Sector 3 Social Venture Group, led by Ximena Querol, to support and certify women business owners in the region.
In late April 2016, WEConnect International participated in the conference "Why are there still empty chairs? The challenges for women in the work force" organized by ESAN University, in Lima. Belisa de las Casas, Director for Latin America, showcased success stories of women who, despite the existing barriers, are now part of corporate value chains due to their certification. Highly respected and well-known researchers were among the speakers as well as the Minister of Social Inclusion and Minister of Education. The event was attended by some 150 people.
