We are thrilled to announce our collaboration with the Consulate of Mexico in Oklahoma, a partnership to enrich our Women's Business Center Program.
For both institutions, the core objective remains steadfast: to empower and instill confidence in every woman entrepreneur within our program. These women are the backbone of their households, and it's essential to bolster their capabilities. We aspire to equip these enterprising women with theoretical knowledge and provide spaces for intellectual and personal growth, enabling them to realize their aspirations and dreams despite the array of challenges they may face, including migration, economic constraints, social dynamics, and geographical barriers.
To this end, we have meticulously structured an educational entrepreneurship program, delineated into the following stages:
