Changing the world one small business at a time - UPS

What’s the story: What if there was a way to boost the global economy and create 288 million to 433 million jobs worldwide? According to a March 2022 report by Citigroup Inc., parity among men and women entrepreneurs worldwide could do just that.

This isn’t news to UPS: Back in 2018, UPS and The UPS Foundation launched the Women Exporters Program (WEP) to help address the disparity in education and workforce participation between men and women by providing targeted assistance to women-owned small and medium-sized businesses (SMB) worldwide.

“We knew helping more women-owned businesses to export was key to unlocking more prosperity for communities around the globe,” said Maria Luisa Boyce, vice president of international trade and Latin America for UPS global public affairs.
