WIIT's Charitable TrustOur mission is to support women's access to the benefits of international trade by providing educational opportunities, connecting women entrepreneurs to global markets and improving the knowledge base to inform policymakers on trade issues.
We achieve this mission by:
- Providing scholarships to graduate and undergraduate women in the field of International Trade who show promise as Future Global Leaders
- Helping women in developing economies enter global markets by establishing partnerships that promote free and fair trade
- Educating women worldwide on how to participate in trade from starting their own businesses to understanding global trade policy
HistoryThe WIIT Charitable Trust was founded in 2001 to fund charitable activities that promote the benefits of trade. Since its creation, the Trust has focused on educational resources designed to convey key trade concepts, sponsored the popular "Trade 101" series on the Hill, which provided Congressional staffers with basic education on trade and launched a scholarship initiative.
The WIIT Charitable Trust is a 501(c)(3) organization and contributions are tax exempt. Contributions to the Trust are separate from membership dues for WIIT.
