We are running a special edition of our award-winning Leadership for Growth program for Women Social Entrepreneurs. With support from the U.S. Consulate General Chennai we are able to offer the program free of cost to the selected applicants.
Research insights from the Sixth Economic Census indicate that southern India accounts for more than half of the women-led small scale industrial units in the country. On the other hand, studies also highlight the various social, economic, cultural, societal, and personal challenges faced by women entrepreneurs in India.
With social entrepreneurship poised as a promising pathway for women to overcome these challenges, there is an urgent need for dedicated capacity building support for them. Based on our deep experience with small and growing businesses in emerging markets, the customized version of this program is designed to help women social entrepreneurs build the 21st century skills, resources, and professional networks needed to thrive in their contexts.
If you are a woman entrepreneur looking for such support, we invite you to apply* to this fully-funded leadership development program.
*Applications will be reviewed on a first-come-first-served basis, so we encourage you to apply soon. A total of 20 participants will be selected.
