Women Export Academy 2022

When: Thursday, May 26, 2022 - 10:00am to Thursday, June 23, 2022 - 5:00pm
Where: Online - Central Time

The Women Export Academy is a collaborative initiative between the U.S. Commercial Service and UPS that aims to increase the participation of women-owned and women-led business in exporting and to create more opportunities for women entrepreneurs to achieve economic equality. 

This capacity-building program will equip entrepreneurs with the necessary tools and resources to become globally competitive and increase the participation of women-owned and women-led businesses in international trade. The program’s curriculum includes virtual workshops, one-on-one consultations, 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 shipment.

Trade has the potential to expand women’s role in the economy, decrease inequality, and to expand women’s access to skills and education. It can also dramatically improve women’s lives, creating new jobs, enhancing consumer choice, and increasing women’s bargaining power in society. 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.

The Women Export Academy 2022 will be hosted online every Thursday, from May 26 to June 23 at 10 am Central Time, and it is free to attend and will consist of the following trainings:

  1. Going Beyond Borders to Grow Your Business (May 26)
