WESST Farmington TrainingEmpowHer Forum: Driving Women Empowerment Principles for Locally Women-Owned Businesses

Women Empowerment

March is women’s month; come celebrate women and learn about empowerment principals. Empowering women to participate fully in economic life across all sectors is essential in building stronger, sustainable economies that improve the quality of life for women, men, families and communities. Women’s Empowerment Principles offer practical guidance to businesses on how to empower women in the workplace, marketplace and community.  Empowerment principles are the result of collaboration between the UN Global Compact and UN Women.

The Farmington Women’s Business Center has adopted its own empowHer principles that we would like to share with local women entrepreneurs and women business owners. 

  • Empowering women through technology
  • Empowering women through equity inclusion
  • Empowering women’s voices 
  • Empowering women to run their own businesses
  • Empowering women to drive change in community 

Please join the Farmington Women’s Business Center and our program partners, New Mexico Manufacturing Extension Partnership, and the Small Business Development Center, along with guest speakers to engage you in creating your own empowHer principals.
