AWEP was launched in July 2010 in conjunction with the U.S.-hosted Africa Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) Forum. The women who participate in the program include accomplished entrepreneurs, business owners and leaders of diverse enterprises in Africa. Some export under the terms of AGOA, while others are working to increase their export capacities and establish business relationships with U.S. partners. All are leaders in their communities and many are involved in women’s business and advocacy organizations.
