Walmart continues its commitment to working with woman-owned suppliers:
“Walmart launched its global Women’s Economic Empowerment (WEE) initiative in 2011, aiming to source $20 billion from U.S. WOB in five years, and to double the spend on WOB in specific international markets. By the end of 2016, it exceeded the U.S. goal, sourcing $21.2 billion domestically in that period, and sourced almost $250 million internationally from WOB in 2016.“
P.S. If you are a woman with your own supplier business, or you work for a woman-owned supplier, Walmart wants to work with you. Check out our Selling to Walmart course and get your products on Walmart’s shelves.
