Babson, Wellesley Launch U.S.-Saudi Women’s Forum on Social Entrepreneurship
The Center for Women’s Leadership at Babson College and the Wellesley Centers for Women at Wellesley College have announced their partnership with two renowned global organizations–Dar Al Hekma College, Saudi Arabia, and ICF International— to deliver the U.S.-Saudi Women’s Forum on Social Entrepreneurship July 13-24, 2009, at Babson College.
Faculty from the partnering institutions will work with 30 female Saudi students to refine the skills they need to create real plans for entrepreneurial ventures, including how to navigate the challenges of designing and delivering social entrepreneurship programs, enhancing leadership skills, and cultivating the creative processes necessary for success.
In addition, several successful female entrepreneurs with ventures in corporate social responsibility, traditional not-for-profits, and social entrepreneurship, will share their experiences during the program’s speaker series component.
This program is funded through the Middle East Partnership Initiative.
