FULL DISCLOSURE: A BIAS FOR WOMEN

Supporting businesses led by women

CHANGE IS A PROCESS, NOT AN EVENT

As a nonprofit, Bpeace’s theory of change is rooted in the belief that when women have economic power, they are stronger voices for peace and stability in their communities.

During our rigorous Fast Runner selection process, we ensure that 60% of the small and medium-size businesses we advise are women owned or led. Once in our portfolio, these businesses often outperform their counterparts in terms of revenue and job growth.

Role models inspire

DEVELOPING MORE WOMEN BUSINESS LEADERS

Through our Bpeace Women Forward Awards competition, we identify successful international change agents, celebrate them, and share their stories so that the businesses we work with witness practical and proven examples of women’s value to their organizations.

We then go on to activate this inspiration, with customized advisory delivered to Fast Runners by our Skillanthropists.

The measurable outcome: more women participating as leaders in their businesses and communities.

Caselet

LEARNING SELF-ADVOCACY

Flor is on the leadership team of a major airline ground-handling and maintenance service business in El Salvador—traditionally a male-dominated industry. In charge of human resources, Flor and her team were too often relegated to simply filling open positions, rather than shaping a comprehensive talent strategy.

With coaching by Bpeace Skillanthropist and organizational development expert Angela Scalpello, Flor learned ways in which HR can be a strategic partner to all other business units. Equipped with this information, she was able to articulate her team’s value to her colleagues, earning their respect and assuming a larger, more strategic role in the company.

JOIN US IN MOVING WOMEN FORWARD

Join Bpeace as a Skillanthropist and use your experience and skills to increase opportunities for talented women to participate as leaders in their businesses and communities. In 2021, we are focused on small businesses in the U.S. (minority and women led), El Salvador, Guatemala and Afghanistan.

We publish the stories of our international award winners in the annual Women Forward Playbooks. These inspiring and trailblazing examples provide practical advice for those looking to successfully navigate gender barriers and biases in business and society anywhere in the world.

Your donation helps us bring more resources, training and career tools to women in crisis-affected communities and those challenged by societal or cultural barriers.

When you contribute, you generate a proven multiplier effect, as women create jobs that lift up other women and their families.
