Women’s Entrepreneurship Development

The ILO approach to Women’s Entrepreneurship Development - Sustainable Enterprises

The ILO Women’s Entrepreneurship Development (WED) programme works with partners to increase economic opportunities for women entrepreneurs by supporting them in starting, strengthening and expanding their enterprises.
The programme increases knowledge about women’s entrepreneurship and provides a platform for the voice of women entrepreneurs to be heard and contribute towards shaping policymaking. The WED programme builds on gender equality policies that are integrated across all the ILO’s work in enterprise development.
