Call for Proposals for SDGs&Her competition, co-sponsored by the World Bank Group (WBG), Wharton School's Zicklin Center, UN Women, and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP):

 

SDGs&Her is an on line competition that raises awareness of the SDGs within the women's business community by recognizing the efforts of women entrepreneurs in achieving the SDGs. It collaborates with private sector partners on all SDGs, particularly SDG5, to share best practices and innovative ideas.

The competition is open to women who own and/or lead a microenterprise – defined as an enterprise that employs fewer than 10 people, has annual sales of less than $100,000, and/or has a loan eligibility of less than $10,000.

Applicants complete a short online template describing their work and linking their initiative/product to one or more SDGs. Entries will be screened and then judged by an expert panel, which will select the winners based on the microenterprise's impact on the SDGs, vision, purpose, and clarity.

The top winners will be recognized at an event at the margins of the 2018 UN General Assembly High-Level Week in New York in September 2018, and stories about the winning entrepreneur and many other notable entries will be shared through partners' social media and websites. The deadline for applying is June 30, 2018.

Many thanks in advance for your help in spreading the word about this global competition that we hope will interest many of your partners.
