“Programs like WEI and AWIEF serve to level the playing field while bringing more women to the table and helping to foster diverse business communities”.
Last year in 2020, AWIEF and WEI started a strategic collaboration focused on connecting women entrepreneurs from Africa and the United States. WEI was set up by the City of Atlanta, Georgia to support female entrepreneurship and is empowered by InvestAtlanta.
As a Keynote Speaker at our AWIEF2020 virtual conference and awards, the Mayor of Atlanta, Keisha Lance Bottoms, said “Atlanta’s WEI and AWIEF are connecting to strengthen the ties between Atlanta and the African continent. Africa holds a very special place in the heart of Atlanta. Programs like WEI and AWIEF serve to level the playing field while bringing more women to the table and helping to foster diverse business communities”.
AWIEF is hosting a kick-off international virtual networking event together with the City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of International Affairs (MOIA) and WEI on Thursday, 25th February 2021; 17:00 – 18.30 CAT.
The event is a great opportunity to build strategic relationships across the globe and will host a select number of women entrepreneurs from both the AWIEF and WEI networks of women entrepreneurs.
The event is by invitation only.
