Since the beginning of 2018, BWE21 has taken the initiative to increase the participation of women in the board of directors and leadership positions in ministries, government and non-governmental Entities, where women in general and members of the association, in particular, constitute a bunch of enormous competencies that are not exploited yet. Therefor we called for strengthening policies supporting the necessity of the presence of women in the board of directors. Businesswomen of Egypt 21 created an information bank for women who have sufficient experience to participate in the boards of directors and this bank was shared with the Ministry of Public Business, NCW, AUC & Central Bank of Egypt. Recently three of BWE21 members has been selected to join the boards of directors of three holding companies, 6 of our members has been certified as Corporate Directors from Egyptian Institute of Directors EIOD. A success story that will continue until every woman takes the place she deserves and is able to participate effectively in the economy.
We maintain communication with various entities to support our members' access new markets through networking events, trade missions, exhibitions, awareness sessions, and workshops

The fashion business is even more challenging because this is a hyperactive competitive business industry. Establishing a Fashion School business industry is the perfect way to create job opportunities for young women entrepreneurs, rich with sufficient knowledge of the apparel and textile industry that allow them to start their own business as well as helping in the Egyptian economy growth with their new Egyptian brands. As people are becoming more fashion and Apparel consumers, companies are hiring designers with attractive fashion portfolios therefore the demand for good fashion design schools should be increased.
