Women leaders from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region and other experts from Europe and Asia meet to assess and honor women for their contribution to peace and creating sustainable environments in the Middle East, as well as to facilitate their forward-looking strategies. Participants from areas with a history of conflict, separation and conquest have a rare chance to sit at the same table and share.
The Asia Women's Entrepreneurs Peace Alliance (AWEPA) was inaugurated on April 25, 2015 in Taipei, Taiwan. Successful women entrepreneurs from across Asia share their business experience to bring financial independence to disadvantaged women and promote women's economic participation in the region. Women helping women on employment and entrepreneurship is the most practical solution to raising the status of women.
