EU project to hold Academy on Women in Business Support Organisations in the South Mediterranean
March 3, 2017
The EU-funded EUROMED Invest project is holding a training workshop on “Fostering Women Leaders – Women in Business Support Organisations (BSOs)” in Marrakesh, Morocco, on 6-7 March 2017. The EUROMED Invest Academy will bring together participants from South Mediterranean countries, mainly active women entrepreneurs, members of Confederation of Enterprises and CCIs contributing to the economic, social and political sphere.
During one day and a half, this training will gather BSOs from the MENA region, entrepreneurs, and several stakeholders from the private sector in order to discuss the role of women in the economic and social development of their countries. It will also offer the opportunity to share best practices among BSOs in supporting women entrepreneurs and improving services provided.
The aim of the EUROMED Invest project is to boost private business and investment within the Euro-Mediterranean region to contribute to inclusive economic development. The project’s activities aim to empower Euro-Med business and investment networks to implement targeted strategies in support of SME development in specific sectors: agri-food, water and alternative energies, tourism, transport and logistics, cultural and creative industries.
