Top Story: We Need Your Support!
When WEConnect International was founded six years ago, we were supporting women business owners in just four markets. Today, we provide more than 6,000 women business owners in 100 countries with the skills, training and networks they need to succeed in global markets.
We can't do this without your support!
An online donation of just $15 today can pay for one woman business owner to attend a WEConnect Academy training. $1,000 could help us bring a woman business owner to an international trade show. Help us reach our October goal of $1,000 and make a difference in the life of a woman entrepreneur! We've already raised $140 - nearly enough for 10 women to attend WEConnect Academy.
Top Story: WEConnect International Corporations Earn High Marks!
The BUY UP Index is a new app that allows consumers to make purchasing decisions based on a company's demonstrated commitment to gender equality. The organization rates everyday brands and products and the companies behind them. Using a proprietary rating methodology, the BUY UP index assesses companies on four major areas: Women Employees, Women Leadership, Corporate Citizenship, and Marketing.
We are proud to say several WEConnect International corporate members earned A and B grades in their industry categories, and some earned top positions. Remarkably, Procter & Gamble received an A rating in three separate industries.
