2023 Sustainability Program Initiatives

The Global SD&I Symposium is proud to present our WEConnect International Sustainability Program initiatives. These initiatives are designed to economically empower women-owned businesses around the world. We are committed to creating a world where equality and opportunity for women is a top priority.
Our sustainability program initiatives include:

• Supporting women-owned businesses through mentorship and capacity building programs, with access to resources, networks, and capital.
• Working with partners to create a global platform for collaboration, networking, and knowledge sharing.
• Establishing a global market for women-owned businesses, in order to increase their visibility and access to new opportunities.
• Promoting gender-inclusive economic growth and providing opportunities to women and girls in developing countries.
We are excited to bring together experts in the field of women-owned businesses and the SD&I Symposium is the perfect platform to do so. We look forward to seeing you there, and to making our shared vision of economic empowerment for women a reality.
