Academy for Women Entrepreneurs

Sponsor: Department of State
Target Group: Faculty & Staff
Closing Date: September 18, 2020
Description: State Department´s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) launched the Academy for Women Entrepreneurs (AWE), a program to teach women around the world to become successful entrepreneurs. AWE is an educational opportunity for prospective women entrepreneurs and early-stage business owners that uses an online entrepreneurship course at its core. Participants gather “in-person” (synchronous format) to view course modules or to discuss after reviewing individually online. By creating an educational cohort and reinforcing peer-to-peer learning, course completion rates increase significantly from on-line only learning. Facilitators, chosen from alumni, business leaders, or other qualified professionals, will lead the discussions and help to localize the principles taught. Additional sessions should address country-specific topics or develop other skills useful to entrepreneurs.
