NAWBO is hosting this free virtual summit for women powering big dreams.  
HERstory in the Making will be held on Zoom to allow you to connect and grow with women busines owners from around the world.

Historically, the NAWBO International Task Force has deployed delegations of members to different parts of the world as part of NAWBO’s commitment to contribute to a strong global community of female entrepreneurs. This year for Women’s History Month, we want to shine the spotlight on the rapidly growing world of female entrepreneurs, showcase their diverse perspectives and learn what they are experiencing in their unique communities.   During the event we will hear from leaders of international organizations and participate in roundtables to discuss ways we can support each other - in life and business - and build stronger international alliances.

Event Agenda

11:00 - 12:30 pm ET               State of Global WBO’s: Panel Discussion

After a year of the pandemic, we recognize women around the globe have experienced significant loss – businesses struggled, wide-spread joblessness, ill family members, and restrictions to gathering.  Now out of this hardship, women are developing strength, resiliency and creating new opportunities for themselves.  In this session, leaders from international women’s organizations will discuss the emerging economic landscape for women business owners.  We will hear stories of how women worldwide are adapting and will ultimately thrive in the “new normal.”

Key takeaways:

  • How economic stability and business opportunities have changed for women since the start of the pandemic

  • What do female entrepreneurs need now, and how can we develop a thriving international support network

  • How international WBOs are adapting to grow their businesses and what will be the lasting effects

Presented by:

  • Lucero Cabrales Garcia, AMEXME President
  • Cristina Morales Heaney, NAWBO National Chair
  • Irene Natividad, Global Summit of Women President
  • Marie Christine Oghly, FCEM World President
