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. This year, Women Export University is a one-day hybrid event full of insights and training on export strategies, tools, and resources to enter new markets, insights on how to build an export-friendly digital presence, and guidance on package flows and preparing export shipments. Join us to learn more about e-commerce, marketing, and federal, state, and local resources.

The Women Export University is a partnership between the Atlanta Mayor’s Office of International & Immigrant Affairs-Welcoming Atlanta and UPS that aims to increase the participation of women-owned businesses in exporting and create more opportunities for women entrepreneurs to achieve economic equality. This year, we are excited to also partner with the Russell Innovation Center for Entrepreneurs (RICE).

This program is fully-funded and requires no cost to participate.

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.



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



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.
