WEConnect International and Procter & Gamble have previously partnered in South Africa (2017 and 2019) to provide the Business Development Program (BDP), a 10-module capacity building training program, to a diverse range of women business owners registered with WEConnect International.  The course was highly rated by the trainees – not only the relevance of the content, but also the expertise of the presenters and facilitators, many of whom were from the P&G  leadership team.
