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.

We are thrilled to announce that our partner, Vital Voices, is currently accepting applications for the 2016-2017 VV GROW Fellowship! The VV GROW Fellowship is a highly competitive one-year accelerator program for women owners of small and medium businesses in Latin America and the Caribbean, the Middle East and North Africa, and sub-Saharan Africa.
