Delegates from WE-NET engaged in networking opportunities with women entrepreneurs from across the world, including Eva Cavalli, Partner, Roberto Cavalli, Sharjah Business Women Council, Association of German Women Entrepreneurs, Jordan Forum for Business & Professional Women, KAGIDER, Monaco Business Women Association and others.
WE-NET is the first representative body from Pakistan that has been granted membership to FCEM. WE-NET delivered a presentation on its objectives, the importance of women’s participation in economic development and the unique potential of women entrepreneurs in Pakistan. The presentation was deemed exemplary by the FCEM committee, thereby leading to WE-NET’s exemption from the mandatory membership waiting period of two years.
