Mission and objectives

Founded in 2006, the Lebanese League for Women in Business (LLWB)is a socio-economic, apolitical, non-religious association bringing together professional women and providing them with a platform for (1) Sharing Experiences, (2) Developing Competencies and Skills, (3) Establishing Networks and Exchanging Expertise, (4) Accessing funds and (5) Mentorship.
LLWB’s mission has been driven by building partnerships and collaborations with various stakeholders in the ecosystem that share similar goals of addressing socio-economic gaps.
