The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, in collaboration with the Australian APEC Study Centre, is running an online course entitled Supporting Women’s Access to Global Markets for the APEC Business Community. The training explores how business groups can better support women entrepreneurs and business owners to build export-ready businesses and access global markets. The course will be available as a free, self-paced online resource until December 2021.

The course explores the specific barriers faced by women traders and provides tools that will enable business groups to assist women-led businesses to identify and access international markets, export opportunities, build market recognition and manage risk. Through interviews with business leaders and academics from across the Asia Pacific, the course provides dynamic resources and the tools to support women entrepreneurs and women-led micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs).
