Based on 6 years’ experience of dialogue with women entrepreneurs, national women business organisations, international leading organisations and business support schemes from the Euro-Mediterranean region, the UfM Women Business Forum is a regional platform taking place every year that offers women-owned and women-led businesses a unique opportunity to grow their business to the next level by learning from successful and innovative business models, and by building business connections with diverse and high-level international business leaders, policy makers and experts from the world’s leading companies.

In this year’s edition, the forum co-organised by the UfM and UNIDO, will provide the opportunity to discuss gender-smart financing to empower women as entrepreneurs, traders, workers, and professionals, as well identify financial inequalities that remain gender-based. It will also discuss which models and good practices should be disseminated to ensure that women-led businesses can be an engine and growth and job opportunities for women and girls of the MENA region.

This year the UfM-UNIDO Women Business Forum will include

  • Two round tables with the participation of high-level international decision-makers and experts from the public and private sector. 
  • Field visit to women-led companies in the Barcelona Metropolitan Area (Spain). 
  • Networking opportunity through the speed networking events organised by the MENA Women Business Club, a joint UfM/UNIDO initiative.
  • Capacity building workshops for women entrepreneurs aiming to improve their access to finance.
