The U.S. Embassy in Riyadh proudly joined the launch of the second Women Innovators (WIn) Fellowship, a program set to empower 34 Saudi women entrepreneurs with a year-long journey filled with mentoring, networking, and business prospects.

U.S. Ambassador Michael Ratney extended warm congratulations to this year’s participants, emphasizing the embassy’s commitment to supporting aspiring female leaders in Saudi Arabia through initiatives like the WIn Fellowship. The launch event featured a recorded message from HRH Princess Reema bint Bandar Al Saud, Saudi Arabia’s Ambassador to the United States, and took place at ‘The Garage’ in Riyadh, a dynamic innovation hub dedicated to nurturing emerging tech startups.

The WIn Fellowship, a collaborative effort between the U.S. Embassy Riyadh, the Atlantic Council, Georgetown University’s McDonough Business School, and PepsiCo, offers a comprehensive virtual program. This program includes invaluable mentorship and networking opportunities with esteemed business leaders, government officials, and policy experts from the United States and the Middle East. Additionally, five distinguished WIn program participants will partake in a one-week exchange in Washington, DC, strengthening international ties.

As women’s involvement in the Saudi economy continues to grow, the United States remains steadfast in its commitment to empower women economically and foster connections between promising American and Saudi female business leaders.
