ITC SheTrades boosts online offers to support women entrepreneurs during COVID-19 crisis
Micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) across the world are increasingly feeling the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The women-owned businesses that participate in the International Trade Centre’s (ITC) SheTrades Initative are no exception. Most, in fact, have been forced to close their doors and find their own ways of coping, not only to keep themselves and their businesses going, but also their communities.
To help women-owned businesses get through this challenging period and prepare them for post-COVID-19, the SheTrades team is currently ramping up and strengthening the initiative’s online products. This includes rolling out new content and modules on the SheTrades.com platform, including workshops on its virtual learning space, webinars, publications, success stories, and videos.
Through the SheTrades virtual learning space, members of the initiative can access free, high-quality modules developed by ITC experts and partners, and earn badges upon completing the courses. There are currently 25 modules available in English and Spanish on topics such as export-readiness and logistics, with many additional modules to be launched shortly.
