We want to send a special thank you to all Enactus United States teams who applied for the Walmart Women’s Economic Empowerment Project Partnership. Please join me in congratulating the 73 Enactus US teams who will be participating in the 2014–2015 program. Click here to see the full list.
This is the fifth year of the Walmart WEE Project Partnership in the US. Last year, participating Enactus US teams worked side-by-side with women to provide workforce training to equip them with the skills necessary to succeed in the workforce. As a result, over 40 women received certifications to enhance their credentials, nearly 30 women enrolled in college and over 240 women obtained employment.
I know teams will continue to make real progress towards women’s economic empowerment in 2014–2015. We can’t wait to see the success of your projects!
Project Manager, Global Partnerships
