On Tuesday, March 3, WFC presented a workshop during the UN sessions of CSW (Commission on the Status of Women). 30 women founders from Togo, Philippines, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, France, Sudan and the USA joined the workshop. Some of the women had attended one or two of WFC’s prior CSW workshops and even spotted their faces in the WFC website banner! Workshop facilitators included Rose Oby Nwosu from Nigeria (below) who also serves as that country’s Network Chair. Goldie Milgram and Sallie Gratch (from the USA) were the other group facilitators.

If you’re a woman founder of an NGO (nongovernmental organization/nonprofit),
you’re in the right space!
In fact, women thinking of starting an NGO are also welcome here along with women founders who want to interact with women founders from around the world, to explore their common identity of “women founders”.
