IORA | Women Mean Business
Women Mean Business is a joint initiative between the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Indian Ocean Rim Association. The initiative aims to mobilise chambers of commerce across the Indian Ocean rim region on issues relating to women’s economic empowerment.
Women’s economic empowerment is a cross-cutting priority for IORA, of which Australia is 2013-2015 chair. The Australian Chamber is leading an ambitious project to support and develop culturally relevant programs based around women in business. The Australian Chamber is working with its counterparts in Indonesia, South Africa and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
