Since the first week of September, I have been coordinating a project on continued training for female entrepreneurs in Envigado, a municipality right next to Medellín. The project is financed by the Secretary of Gender Equality at Envigado and aims at offering two continued training programs for female entrepreneurs. Our team is made up of five excellent teachers. The project also includes visits to small business in Envigado to carry out surveys to learn more about the business’s gender equality practices.
Today was the first day. The teachers introduced themselves to the 35 women registered in this program. The female students will take five modules on gender equality, empowerment, and entrepreneurship until December 2018. I’ll be posting about this project, so stay tuned.
