Categories:Project

Welcome to the 2012-2013 Walmart Women’s Economic Empowerment Project Partnership Blog! Here you will find tips, updates, announcements and other beneficial information for your team’s Women’s Economic Empowerment project from Enactus Project Specialist, Kathryn Atchley.

The Walmart Women’s Economic Empowerment Project Partnership mobilizes Enactus teams to empower women in their country to raise their quality of life and standard of living through workforce training and/or assistance to start or expand a business. Last year alone, Enactus teams in Brazil, China, Mexico and the United States empowered over 6,000 women with workforce or entrepreneurial training!

This year, we are excited to announce that Enactus teams in Canada and India will also be eligible to participate in this Project Partnership. For information on eligibility, grants and prizes available, project goals, ideas and more, browse www.walmartempowerswomen.org. Each country also has an Enactus contact who will be available to answer questions and offer guidance. Find contact information for your country’s Enactus contact here.

Is your Enactus team interested in empowering women to further their careers and economic opportunity? Visit your Country Page for information on how to apply for the Women’s Economic Empowerment Project Partnership. We look forward to receiving your application!
