As part of a corporate commitment to empower women worldwide to build better lives for themselves and their families, Walmart announces the launch of Empowering Women Together, an online destination that gives shoppers who want to buy unique and interesting products the opportunity to do so while supporting small women-owned businesses around the world.
Empowering Women Together is an element of Walmart’s Global Women’s Economic 5-year commitment through 2016 to source $20 billion from women-owned businesses.
Yes, $20 billion from women-owned businesses like Gahaya Links and Full Circle Exchange.
With each purchase made through Empowering Women Together, not only are new jobs created but also lives and communities improved.
At launch, Empowering Women Together will offer more than 200 items from 19 businesses in 9 countries. Products include:
- Jewelry from Peru, Rwanda, Kenya and the U.S.
- Home accessories from Rwanda and Haiti
- Paper mache from Haiti
- Apparel and accessories from Rwanda
- iPad and laptop cases from Cambodia and Nepal
- Coffee and tea sets sourced globally and made in America
- Specialty foods made in America and Canada
