What is Empower Her?
Empower Her is a joint initiative of the GM/US&FOCS's, AmCham EU, and AmChams in Europe that aims to contribute to the ambitious gender policy driven by the Biden/Harris administration.
It was first announced by Gina Raimondo, U.S. Secretary of Commerce on March 24th, in the framework of the Transatlantic Conference. The initiative marked the clear goal of moving towards a more equal society and, to do so, it promoted direct action by the private sector seeking to facilitate women’s economic empowerment and entrepreneurship.
AmChamSpain would like to invite all its members to join Empower Her and become promoters of gender equality and women’s empowerment. The main goals of the initiative include:
- Advancing women’s economic empowerment and gender equality in international trade.
- Urging U.S. and European companies to diversify their workplace and support women-owned businesses.
- Improving tools and services for women.
- Increasing awareness for female entrepreneurs of trade, investment, and export-related services.
