The Cartier Women's Initiative is an annual international entrepreneurship programme that aims to drive change by empowering women impact entrepreneurs. Founded in 2006, the programme is open to women-run and women-owned businesses from any country and sector that aim to have a strong and sustainable social and/or environmental impact. Our vision is a world in which every woman impact entrepreneur driving social change can achieve her full potential. Our mission is to shine a light on women impact entrepreneurs and provide them with the necessary financial, social and human capital support to grow their business and build their leadership skills. The following principles inform our mission and guide our actions: 1. We believe women can be extraordinary change agents, and we leverage business as an important force for good. 2. We contribute by creating opportunities for everyone. Talent is universal but opportunities are not. 3. We are constantly learning. We leave room for the possibility that there is something we have not learnt yet that could make us even better. 4. We see beyond ourselves and care for our team, communities that we serve and communities that we are a part of.
