Rapport International Receives IWEC Foundation Award
President Wendy Pease honored by entrepreneurial group for continued support of women-owned businesses worldwide
By: Rapport International
"A new world of opportunities has arisen following the pandemic, emerging across sectors and driven by globalization and digitalization,"
The IWEC Foundation, an international economic empowerment program for women, maintains an ever-growing global network of women business owners, helping them gain access to international markets. Rapport International and its Owner and President Wendy Pease are being honored for supporting over 150 companies in their globalization efforts last year, providing translation management strategies designed specifically for cross-cultural understanding, as well as for a demonstrated track record of social responsibility.
"We are committed advocates for global growth, based on the belief that connecting people across borders and cultures will inspire a more peaceful and prosperous world," said Pease. "We are so proud of our work with IWEC and its constituents, and thankful for the opportunities it affords us in turn. And we are forever committed to paying it forward through our work with Opportunity International, UMCOR, the Pearl Buck Foundation, and the American Cancer Society, among others."
As a group, IWEC members generate over $1.4 billion in export revenue annually, and employ nearly 300,000 people. The Awards Ceremony was held in Madrid, Spain. For more information on the IWEC Foundation and to submit a nomination for the 2023 Award, visit https://www.iwecfoundation.org/
