Summit Author Charles G. Irion Supports Project Artemis

I had the pleasure of meeting and dining with 20 Afghan businesswomen at Tuesday's Project Artemis dinner. The event was hosted by my alma mater Thunderbird School of Global Management.

This month, Thunderbird School of Global Management hosted 20 businesswomen from Afghanistan as participants in its fourth annual Project Artemis program, an intensive entrepreneurship skills course.

Project Artemis provides women with business training, coaching, mentoring and access to resources to become self-sustaining citizens in their homeland, create opportunities for employment and help rebuild Afghanistan through small business.
