SDG’s&Her Competition 2019 – Win A Trip To Washington DC

Applications are now accepted for the 2019 SDGs&Her Initiative, an initiative of the World Bank and the Wharton School’s Zicklin Center for Business Ethics Research, in collaboration with UN Women and UNDP. This initiative is an online competition that honors outstanding women micro-entrepreneurs who are supporting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The top winners will be recognized at an event during the 2019 World Bank & IMF Spring Meetings in Washington DC and their participants’ accomplishments and ideas will be shared prominently on social media.

Building on the experience and success of their Ideas for Action initiative they also hope for SDGs&Her to help participants maintain clarity about their priorities and goals, to confront challenging social problems that have no obvious solutions, and to feel comfortable taking risks, learning new approaches, and experimenting in more informed ways as they develop actionable ideas with scalable and sustainable impact.

Deadline: December 31, 2018

Location: United States, Washington DC


Winners will receive leadership training, mentoring and will be flown to Washington DC, for an event at the World Bank Group-IMF Spring Meetings in April 2019, where they will showcase their achievements.

-be a woman owner of a business that has been in operation for at least 3 years
