Women Empowering Women (WEW)

Women Empowering Women is a women's network for global change.

There is power in community. When women come together, they change the world. Think of the women in your life – the challenges they have faced, the battles they have overcome, the people they inspire, the world they foster.

Women Empowering Women (WEW) is a giving group that brings women together to learn, encourage, advocate, and give back.

At WEW events, attendees engage with MEDA’s gender equality work around the world. Each event offers an opportunity to network with like-minded individuals and learn from a MEDA staff member about the organization’s mission to create a gender equitable world by creating business solutions to poverty.

After each event, attendees are invited to give a donation to help advance MEDA’s gender equality work around the world.

Why Women?

Women are key drivers of economic growth, engaging in business as consumers, employees, leaders, suppliers and community stakeholders. Yet, women are frequently overlooked and underrepresented in the private sector throughout the world.

MEDA has been at the forefront of integrating gender equality and women’s empowerment with innovation in private sector development. From pioneering the development of the microfinance industry to originating breakthrough business service models for women in fragile states, MEDA seeks to empower women in private sectors around the world.
