The women will meet with public and private sector representatives to discuss federal and global efforts to promote the status of women and foster economic growth and stability. The program includes opportunities for them to collaborate with other women business leaders in the United States and around the world at all levels of development, from start-ups to major corporations, as well as business incubators, financial institutions, NGOs, and universities that support entrepreneurship among women.
The program begins in Washington, D.C. before the participants split up and travel to California, Colorado, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Texas. During these city splits, they will meet with women business owners and state and local organizations that support women in the workplace. The program will close on September 28 when the participants return to their home countries.
