Women's Program Engagement Council (WPEC)
We are pleased to announce we are collaborating with Global Sustainable Partnerships (GSP) to spearhead our inaugural Women’s Program Engagement Council (WPEC) to create a platform to celebrate, support and empower women entrepreneurs and engage women and men globally and encourage them to pledge their support for women owned businesses during the summit and beyond. We are reaching out and connecting with major Fortune 500 companies for key female representatives, as well as African leaders, various woman owned company founders, CEO’s, philanthropist, key policy makers, creatives, and business leaders to speak, moderate, participate and attend the ATIGS conference.
As part of this endeavor, we are looking to showcase women utilizing social impact in their entrepreneurial efforts and propelling the current wave of innovation to drive global sustainable development. Exploring the relevance of new technologies to address existing socio-economic gaps and supporting internationally agreed development targets such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is critical to bringing communities out of poverty and into local, regional and global markets. This cannot be done without the female workforce and women owned Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs). By supporting SMEs, those owned and run by women, ATIGS can act as a catalyst in the alleviation of poverty and inspire new generations of businessmen and women.
It is our hope that ATIGS can lead the trade and investment industries in its efforts to represent not only a diversity of key global stakeholders, but also ensure female voices within these industries are represented, recognized and championed for their role as innovators, job creators, entrepreneurs, mentors and managers bringing ideas to life.
