WECAN Trainings for Empowering Women Enterpreneurs

The Macedonian e-news portal "Biznis Vesti" shared the project's activities that are to follow in the near future - WECAN TRAININGS FOR EMPOWERING WOMEN ENTREPRENEURS.


WECAN is an ongoing project implemented by 6 partners from different European countries. The main goal of this project is to foster positive perceptions of women about their skills through a training process so that they learn what it actually takes to be an entrepreneur.

As part of the project activities, the project partners organized a training, which consisted of five WECAN sessions in which women entrepreneurs participated in order to stimulate their professional growth in their business life. Through the WECAN training, which lasted from April 7 to 20, the trained women were able to fully improve their competencies to learn how to maintain the continuity of their business, improve their management of risks, build skills for communication and negotiation, write business plans, become better acquainted with digital marketing and acquire the necessary leadership capabilities. The training sessions of this project included various interactive challenges as support for exiting the comfort zone, confronting it with ice-breaking activities and adapting them to socialization from a different perspective of the new online world.

Part of the implementation of this customized training program includes learning experiences such as workshops, seminars, business talks and group discussions, creative thinking implemented through interactive and fun games, and in addition to all of them there is an online learning platform (available here on the WECAN website). After the evaluation of all daily activities and the whole program in general, each participant received a certificate of attendance, was enriched with unforgettable experience and built connections with new people by maintaining contact in international relations. The knowledge that the participants gained through this training is mostly due to the unconventional approach to learning and growing as a result of the creativity and the need for sharing and joint creation that took place on a multicultural and international level.

As a project with ongoing continuity of implementation, its activities keep going further in May and June 2021 by providing a training for every adult woman who is ready to create value, start a new business or increase her chances and upgrade her career options through key entrepreneurial skills. The training is part of the national pilot program of the project and it will be free of charge.

In North Macedonia, this training is scheduled to run from May 17th to June 10th and will take place on the online platform ZOOM.

With that in mind, if you are a woman who wants to be part of a different cognition and if you are ready for an upgrade of your own entrepreneurial skills or if you know someone who might be interested, you can apply by submitting your CV and a brief description of your current business or entrepreneurial idea you want to implement at the following email address: This email address is being protected from spambots.
