The IWEC Global Ambassador Program

In March 2016, IWEC launched its first-ever Global Ambassadors Program. This dynamic initiative aims to expand market connections for businesswomen whose combined annual revenues are in excess of US$25 billion dollars per year, empowering them to form sustainable business liaisons with potential partners and approach new markets locally and worldwide. Global Ambassadors assist the organization achieve its goals by providing constant outreach to peers in their respective country, going beyond the annual IWEC Conference.

As Representatives of the Organization’s Mission, the Global Ambassadors Are Committed to:

Offering mentorship and guidance to fellow female entrepreneurs.

Share best practices and learnings to enhance others.

Provide access to business opportunities.

Engage businesswomen in their territories encouraging them to participate in the Annual Conference.

As Internal IWEC Thought-Leaders They Work to:

Capture strategic data and insights from past awardees for the organization’s business intelligence database.

Drive conference participation and attract qualified nominees for the IWEC Award.

Provide strategic and tactical recommendations during the organization’s monthly meetings.

Communicate their territories’ unique economic, social, and cultural structures and needs.

Serve as a cohesive point of contact for IWEC within their territories.

Secure sponsors and supporters for the organization.

IWEC’s chamber partners select and nominate the Global Ambassadors, who are also past IWEC Awardees, and submit their profiles to the Steering Committee for review. The program names one Global Ambassador for each global region for a period of two years, renewable by the Global Ambassador and IWEC’s Steering Committee. All Global Ambassadors report to IWEC’s Board of Directors. As IWEC continues to grow in additional cities and countries, it will add Global Ambassadors on an annual basis.
