The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation Corporate Citizenship Center, along with the American Chamber of Commerce in Mexico, WEConnect International, and our corporate and nonprofit partners, will convene a two-day event in Mexico City on February 9-10, 2016 focused on promoting women’s entrepreneurship.
This program will explore the global private sector’s economic empowerment efforts in Mexico. A key focus will be the status of Mexican women-owned businesses and offer global companies ways in which they can integrate them into supply chains. Research has shown that investing in women produces a multiplier effect – women reinvest a large portion of their income in their families and communities. Supporting the development and growth of women-owned businesses and entrepreneurs, corporations are able to enhance their social impact and enable a prosperous Mexican economy.
