Women Biz Days
Period of implementation of the project:
July 2019 – August 2021
Women constitute 49.6% of the world population, but their contribution to world GDP is only 37%. Women are powerful agents of change, but continue to be under-represented in decision-making in politics, businesses, and communities.
The ITFC focuses on trade and the development of sales. At seminars on developing skills to enter foreign markets, we have repeatedly observed greater involvement of women than men. This allowed us to conclude that the direction of training in entrepreneurial skills and sales is relevant for women.
The ITFC team decided to conduct training, mentoring sessions and motivational workshops for women to increase their level of involvement in business and scale of entrepreneurial activity. The main purpose of business seminars «Women Biz Days» – increase the productivity and efficiency of SMEs led by women, through improving business management skills.
The main results:
– 14 business seminars
– 3300 applications
– 360 participants
– 15 businesses official created
