Explore this section to learn more about our community and the opportunities we offer to over 700 members globally.

The Cartier Women’s Initiative community is a lifelong community of impact entrepreneurs and their supporters. Our network of passionate impact leaders from around the world consists of current and previous fellows, mentors, jury members, coaches and other program partners.

We aim to create a safe space where our community members can learn from each other, help each other and network with each other at any time.

Once a fellow has been selected, they are given lifelong access to our community. We provide lifelong support to our fellows and various tools for them to build meaningful connections such as the private CWI Community Platform, virtual and in-person events, online groups, and more.


The CWI Community Platform allows the members to connect with each other, take part in discussions, share news, ask for help, participate in peer learning events and much more.


We organize regular events for our community members that may take place virtually or physically. Events include peer learning sessions, knowledge sharing webinars, trainings, networking sessions and much more.

We also partner with entrepreneurship, investment, and impact conferences to host delegation of CWI fellows to bring greater visibility to fellow’s impact businesses and amplify their networks within the global entrepreneurship ecosystem.

One of the most important things that you could receive as an entrepreneur is social capital. And the Cartier Women's Initiative provides a rich social capital that is beyond anyone's imagination.

Our Impact

We conducted a survey on our 15-year anniversary. The majority of the respondents agreed that the program has improved their social capital and bolstered their personal, professional, and business skills.


Sense of Belonging


Expanded My Network



A big part of our work is to create opportunities for role models and sisterhood amongst women impact entrepreneurs. It’s amazing how empowering that is – when you are in the company of someone who has been there, and done that, and also when you are in the company of others doing the same thing but in different parts of the world.
