Women's Economic Empowerment
Through Walmart's Global Women's Economic Empowerment Initiative, Walmart is working to improve the lives of women around the world by providing more training, market access and career opportunities to nearly 1 million women, many on farms and factories, ultimately allowing them access to the economic opportunity they deserve.
We set goals and are taking practical steps to help change the lives of countless women around the world since making our five year long commitment in 2011.
- Increase sourcing from Women-Owned Businesses
- Empower nearly 1 million women through training
- Promote diversity and inclusion representation within our merchandising and professional services suppliers
In the spirit of collaboration, we’ve shared our achievements, challenges and learnings from our WEE initiative on our digital Knowledge Center. Explore how we launched our program, what works, what doesn’t, and what’s needed to accelerate progress for Women’s Economic Empowerment.
