Through training and sourcing, Walmart India’s Women's Economic Empowerment Initiative is providing sustainable employment opportunities and significantly expanding economic opportunities for women across India. Through a combination of our local programs and support from the Walmart Foundation, we are positioned to impact more than 75,000 women in India.
In 2011, Walmart launched the global Women’s Economic Empowerment program to contribute to improving the lives of underserved women around the world. Walmart is taking a leadership role in providing opportunity for these women as it promotes economic growth and better lives for their families. In India, our training initiative focuses on women in agriculture, factories and the retail sector.
