Strategic collaboration with six United Nations agencies culminates in the launch of a ground-breaking initiative – the Women’s Entrepreneurship Accelerator.
Supporting women entrepreneurs is what we do. It’s who we are. As a leading advocate of women’s empowerment and entrepreneurship, Mary Kay partnered with six United Nations agencies to launch the Women’s Entrepreneurship Accelerator. The ground-breaking initiative is a strategic collaboration designed to inspire, educate and empower women entrepreneurs around the world.
Initially available in six languages, the program offers a guided digital curriculum supplemented by on-the-ground training and mentorship. It serves as an advocacy platform to eliminate entrepreneurial roadblocks for women, ranging from digital literacy to legal reform. The Accelerator also supports global efforts to encourage businesses to establish and expand relationships with women-owned businesses.
Future expansion of the Accelerator to 192 countries worldwide includes funding opportunities accessible to women who complete the curriculum. The program will also convene an advisory committee of entrepreneurs, celebrities and advocates to oversee the expansion and promotion of the initiative.
Through this exciting partnership and many others, Mary Kay is empowering women and girls around the world by providing access to the tools and education they need to turn their entrepreneurial dreams into business success!
