The objectives of the initiative are to:

  • recognize women implementing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including women business owners of microenterprises;
  • increase knowledge about the SDGs and their potential impacts on women among non-traditional audiences; and
  • collaborate with private sector partners on all SDGs, but SDG5 in particular; to share best practices and innovative ideas.

To be eligible you must:

  • be a woman owner of a business that has been in operation for at least 3 years,
  • own a micro-enterprise, with at least 1 and no more than 9 employees,
  • have a loan eligibility of under USD $10,000 or annual sales of under USD $100,000

Prizes:

The top winners will be recognized in September 2018 at an event on the margins of the 2018 UN General Assembly High-Level Week in New York. The stories of the winning women entrepreneur (and many other notable entries) will be shared through partners’ social media and websites.
