YABT and PepsiCo Promote Gender Equality With #TICAmericas

Washington DC, March 8, 2017 - The Young Americas Business Trust (YABT), the Organization of American States (OAS) and PepsiCo Latin America are pleased to announce the launch of the "Young Woman Entrepreneur Award" in the framework of the International Women's Day.

Since 2009, YABT and PepsiCo Latin America have been working together to create opportunities for young people with Eco-Challenge and TIC Americas through programs developed with the aim of empowering youth and promoting sustainable development. Thanks to this collaboration, the programs have impacted more than 39,000 young people from Latin America and the Caribbean.

In 2016, PepsiCo Latin America awarded, for the first time at the TIC Americas Finals, the special recognition to a prominent young woman entrepreneur to highlight the leadership and social impact of entrepreneurship led by young women in the region.

In 2017, for the second consecutive year, we renewed our commitment through the "Young Woman Entrepreneur Award". The recognition is aimed at all female entrepreneurs who participated in the previous editions of TIC Americas and Eco-Challenge and through their businesses have been able to positively impact other women in their efforts to enter the formal labor market.
