"Sometimes I tell myself, I may only be planting a tree here, but just imagine what's happening if there are billions of people out there doing something. Just imagine the power of what we can do." ~ Wangari Maathai (1940-2011), Kenyan environmental and political activist, winner of the 1991 Goldman Environmental Prize and the 2004 Nobel Peace Prize. April 22 is Earth Day.
As our name implies, Womenable is focused on one thing: enabling women.

Womenable is a research, program and policy development consultancy whose mission is to improve the environment for women-owned businesses worldwide. More specifically, we:

  • conduct insightful and actionable research,

  • communicate information and insights in a clear, concise, and thought-provoking manner, and

  • work with the stewards of women's entrepreneurship around the world - policy makers, multi-lateral organizations, corporate decision makers, entrepreneurial support organizations, and the women's business community - to implement, evaluate and improve policies and programs to support women's enterprise development.

In other words, we raise the tide that will lift all women-owned boats, and work to provide smooth sailing and a strong tailwind for their growth and development.

Our web site not only contains information about Womenable's projects, partnerships and publications, but about what is happening all around the world in the field of womenís enterprise development.

Thank you for visiting our site, and for your interest in how Womenable is working to educate, enlighten and empower womenís entrepreneurship worldwide.
