WEConnect International Day: Rise to the Challenge

SAVE THE DATE: Registration will open soon.

Join us for a celebratory event where WEConnect International recognizes bold achievements that maximize the power of STEM in global value chains across the world! We’ll honor trailblazing women-owned businesses supporting critical STEM sectors and member buyers who have committed to #Rise2theChallenge and to buy more from women in 2021. If you attend, you’ll enjoy: 

  • Multiple opportunities to network and connect buyers and suppliers via matchmaking sessions and virtual business roundtables, serving all time zones in Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Americas. 
  • Excitement of the inaugural Rise to the Challenge Awards to innovative women-owned businesses in STEM who have overcome barriers to gain market access. Stay tuned – Award Nominations will open by end of April on this page. 

This virtual event is accessible to buyers and suppliers across time zones in Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas. 

Sponsorship opportunities are still available. Contact Michael Tobolski at mtobolski@weconnectinternational.org.
