WHEN A WOMAN’S POTENTIAL IS CHAMPIONED, A WHOLE SOCIETY MOVES FORWARD

Bpeace Women Forward weaves together two initiatives: business advisory for high-potential female small-business owners in struggling communities and an annual awards competition that identifies international role models to inspire and support those high-potential businesswomen.

Our 18+ years of experience indicate that women business leaders need access to successful role models and business-building networks. This is critical for enabling women to realize their business ambitions.

 

In crisis-affected countries like El Salvador and Guatemala, Bpeace Women Forward equips high-potential businesswomen with the skills and role models to grow their businesses and create economic opportunity for others. We call these women Fast Runners.

SEARCH THE WORLD AND IDENTIFY THE BEST

Every facet of the Women Forward program is competitive.

Business owners in crisis-affected communities apply and compete for a slot in the Bpeace Fast Runner program in their country. We select the ones we believe have the best path to growth.

Separately, as part of our advisory, we select role models for the Fast Runners and provide an international network for them through our annual Bpeace Women Forward Awards, the only cross-industry competition that recognizes trailblazing women, men and organizations leading change and providing support and capital for women to thrive in the workplace and in society.

The annual June awards celebration also generates revenue to support Bpeace’s work in crisis-affected communities.

Thanks to the generosity of 200+ guests and winners who attended this year’s Women Forward Global Awards Celebration, we are expanding the number of Fast Runners who will benefit from the Bpeace Women Forward advisory program in 2020.
