2018 Fletcher Women’s Leadership Award

The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University announces today that Elizabeth Vazquez, F96, has been awarded the 2018 Fletcher Women’s Leadership Award (FWLA) . This award was established in 2014 by the Fletcher Board of Advisors and the School’s executive leadership to honor outstanding women graduates who are making a meaningful impact in the world in the private, public and NGO sectors.

Elizabeth is a world leader in women’s economic empowerment and global supplier diversity and inclusion. She is currently President, CEO, and Co-Founder of WeConnect International, a corporate led-nonprofit that helps to empower women business owners to succeed in global markets. In launching WeConnect, Elizabeth recognized and understood the need of an underrepresented and undeserved group within a global and geopolitical context and found a solution to bridge a gap that brings large businesses and small business entrepreneurs together.
