Dream Builder: The Women's Business Creator

Commitment by

Freeport-McMoRan Inc.

In 2011, Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold committed to develop and pilot an online Women's Business Academy with the goal of providing business skills training to an estimated 3,400 women who plan to start or grow small businesses. The Academy, developed in partnership with Thunderbird School of Global Management, is a unique multi-leveled business skills training and certification program. Innovative in its delivery method and focus, the Academy will deliver teaching, tools and resources through a distance learning format using web-based (and other) technologies to provide women with business knowledge and skills. Following their certification, continued access to the Academy provides women with tools and templates to successfully manage and track their business performance, and the ability to tap into a community of women entrepreneurs like themselves for support, to source information and to build their supply chain.
