Supporting women-owned businesses and increasing our sourcing from women around the world isn’t only something we believe in – it’s a concrete goal. Through Walmart's Women's Economic Empowerment Initiative, we aim to train nearly 1 million women, increase Walmart's sourcing from women, and, in doing so, improve the lives of underserved women.

In India, we are proud to support Luxor, a women-owned business that makes pens for our stores in India and our Walmart business around the world. Watch this video and see how executive director Pooja Jain is using her signature brand of leadership to inspire women to learn, grow their confidence, and eventually, achieve their dreams.
