How AMEP USA Serves our Community
CREATING NEW WOMEN-OWNED BUSINESSES
It is our conviction that the path to financial independence, prosperity and personal self-fulfillment is business ownership.
We serve as a platform for small business owners
to connect them with potential clients.
We have organized three Women's Entrepreneurship
Forums where we provide an overview of what it takes
to create a new business and motivate minority women
to become entrepreneurs and business owners.
To support our growing community of small women business owners by providing them with venues to sell their products and services and to gain exposure, we organize Fashion Shows, Women's Expos and Bazaars, with proceeds distributed to other charitable organizations working with the Latina women community.
EDUCATION FOR SUCCESS
We firmly believe that knowledge paves the path to success. Since AMEP USA's inception in 2012, we conduct ongoing seminars, courses, workshops where we provide soft skills training, and in 2016 we organized the first Women's Education Forum, connecting Latina women with education options in the Dallas public college system and universities, also exploring the careers of the future, which are those that offer the best employment and wage options: careers in STEM areas and in the health care sector.
Establishing valuable connections is a must for a business. We offer
a safe and welcoming environment for our women business owners,
for those who wish to create a business and for professional women
and women employees to network, get to know each other, build
trust and friendship and do business with each other.
We organize monthly breakfasts, luncheons, dinner networking meetings, business mixers and social hours.
LINKING WOMEN TO THEIR CULTURAL HERITAGE
While women embrace the culture of Texas and the United States as new Americans, a connection to their cultural heritage nurtures their spirit and links them to their roots. We organize concerts, as well as our signature cultural event where we showcase the best of Mayan culture, gastronomy and theater.
Education for Success
AMEP USA's educational and seminars, courses, workshops, as well as our novel "Coffee with the Consul" series offers women unique access to valuable information and life skills.
Creating Women-Owned Businesses
Our Women's Entrepreneurship Forums, other business-oriented events and partnerships promote the spirit of entrepreneurship.
We are firm believers in the power of networking and the positive results it delivers. Not only do women acquire new clients, they also form lasting friendships.
Linking Women to their Cultural Heritage
Connecting our community to its cultural heritage is an important stepping stone for gaining awareness about our origins and historical perspective.
