WISE Launches at Arab World Social Innovation Forum March 15 in Cairo

The Arab World Social Innovation Forum (awsif.org) is the region's premier platform for gathering an international community of social entrepreneurs and accelerating the local-to-global and global-to-local movement for social change. Leveraging Ashoka’s position as the world’s largest network for social entrepreneurs, Ashoka Arab World will convene over 400 attendees – among them, distinguished social entrepreneurs, leaders in the business and corporate sector, and policymakers and thought leaders - from the region and around the world to launch the Women's Initiative for Social Entrepreneurship (WISE) at the Arab World Social Innovation Forum (AWSIF) 2019.                  

WISE is a global initiative that will identify and address the gender-specific challenges faced by women social entrepreneurs, and reframe the definition of success in social impact from a gender perspective.
