SAUDI ARABIA’S NEW ECONOMIC FORCE: WOMEN ENTREPRENEURS - The Atlantic Council’s empowerME Initiative held a hybrid panel discussion with its WIn Fellowship Roadshow participants on Thursday, March 2.
The WIn Fellowship Roadshow participants, chosen from a highly competitive cohort of more than thirty applicants, discussed their weeklong trip to the United States and what they have learned during their time there.
This event is part of the new WIn (Women Innovators) Fellowship, led by the Atlantic Council’s empowerME Initiative in cooperation with Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business with support from US Embassy Riyadh, PepsiCo, and UPS. The American Chamber of Commerce Saudi Arabia’s Women in Business Committee is the program’s in-person event partner. The yearlong program, from March 2022 to March 2023, enables thirty-three Saudi women entrepreneurs to enhance their networks, increase their practical knowledge, and develop US-Saudi people-to-people and business ties that will help them scale their business locally, regionally, and globally.
