Walmart is supporting small women-owned businesses around the world.
Empowering Women Together is an online destination on Walmart.com 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. With each purchase, consumers lift and empower the women behind these products to create new jobs and improve both their own lives and the lives of their families and communities. At launch, Empowering Women Together offered shoppers more than 200 items from 19 businesses in nine countries.
The program is part of Walmart's larger Women's Economic Empowerment Initiative's commitment to source $20 billion from women-owned businesses.
