International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP)

 The State Department’s International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) professional exchange is AWEP’s primary program tailored to introduce AWEP participants to U.S. business leaders, policymakers, industry associations, nonprofit organizations, and multilateral development organizations. These annual three-week exchanges coincide with the AGOA Forum when hosted in Washington, DC; and are designed to help the participants build business alliances, develop advocacy and communication skills, identify resources to advance women’s entrepreneurship, and take advantage of opportunities for U.S. partnerships through AGOA.
