The Arab World Social Innovation Forum ( 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.
