CAMPAIGN: Economic Empowerment


"The purchasing power of large supply chains could provide billions in sustainable impact for women. By empowering women entrepreneurs, companies can expand their base of suppliers, consumers and productive workers, while improving the lives of women and their families globally.” – From Millions to Billion: Scaling Up Women’s Empowerment Globally, a report by U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation Corporate Citizenship Center

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.

Featured Speakers:

  • Ana Paula Blanco, Director, Communications, Uber Latin America
  • Katia Dumont, Manager, Central American and Mexico Chapter, Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE)
  • Theresa Harrison, Director, Global Supplier Diversity, EY
  • Sarah Thorn, Senior Director, International Trade and Government Relations, Walmart
  • And more!

Promoting Women's Economic Empowerment in Mexico: Exploring Opportunities for Private Sector Engagement and Impact 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. 

Join us to:

  • Explore the global private sector’s economic empowerment efforts in Mexico
  • Discuss current and future challenges and opportunities for women business owners
  • Learn from local women entrepreneurs, government experts, and global business leaders
  • Collaborate with peers on strategies to build prosperity for Mexican women and companies invested in the region.

Who should attend?

  • Companies and cross—sector stakeholders interested in economic empowerment and women’s entrepreneurship in Mexico
  • Global sourcing and supplier diversity professionals
  • Financing and entrepreneurship capacity building organizations
