About Women Export University

The Women Export University is a capacity building program that equips entrepreneurs with the necessary tools and resources to become globally competitive and increase the participation of women-owned businesses in international trade.

Why Participate?

Trade has the potential to expand women’s role in the economy, decrease inequality, and expand women’s access to skills and education.

ONE

TWO

Trade can dramatically improve women’s lives, creating new jobs, enhancing consumer choice, and increasing women’s bargaining power in society.

THREE

FOUR

Exporters employ more women: In developing countries, women make up 33% of the workforce of exporting firms compared with just 24% of non-exporting firms.

Trade creates better jobs for women: When women are employed in sectors with high levels of exports, they are more likely to be formally employed in a job with better benefits, training, and security.
