The Pakistan Women’s Business Opportunity Initiative

The Council announced the Women’s Business Opportunity Initiative in March 2019 to help support women’s empowerment through supplier diversity efforts.

Led by WEConnect International, a member of the Council, in coordination with Vital Voices, the initiative aims to foster research, partnerships, and capacity building of both corporate buyers and women entrepreneurs to help increase the volume of goods and services sourced to corporations by women entrepreneurs in Pakistan.

The initiative is funded by the State Department’s Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor.
