Economic Empowerment Award
We consider women’s entrepreneurship development to be an important channel to women's economic empowerment and a pillar on the road to sustainable development.
Through setting up their own businesses, women can transform their opportunity to gain economic independence, overcome poverty, and improve their well-being. Through this process women can also become drivers of change and take a long-term perspective accounting for the consequences of our actions for our children, and their children and grand children in order to secure a better future.
This award recognises and acknowledges organisations that have strategies in place to allow for future empowerment of women owned or managed businesses or that have successfully used enterprise development as a mechanism to empower women owned and managed businesses.
