U.S. State Department Launches the Academy for Women Entrepreneurs (AWE)

The U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) launched AWE a new initiative supporting women entrepreneurs around the world. 

The Academy, in support of the White House-led Women’s Global Development and Prosperity Initiative, will equip women with the practical skills needed to create sustainable businesses and enterprises. AWE is built around three main goals; to provide online education resources, foster networks that support access to mentorships and connect women through existing exchange programs. 

The Bahamas, along with 25 other countries are participating in the inaugural cohort which includes Latin America, The Caribbean and Africa.
