WEV selected as partner for program
Wednesday, November 26, 2008
California First Lady Maria Shriver, in partnership with The Women’s Conference, has recently launched WE Invest, a new statewide women’s economic empowerment initiative.
Designed to promote financial security and unleash the entrepreneurial spirit of women across California, the WE Invest program, along with WEV and two other nonprofits in California, has launched this initiative to help women move forward together on a path toward personal and economic well being.
WEV was invited to participate in the 2008 Women’s Conference in Long Beach, where five WEV Self-Employment Training graduates were invited to showcase their businesses.
The initiative will help link aspiring businesswomen with WEV’s Self-Employment Training Program, a 14-week, 56-hour training program for women who are starting or growing their own business.
