IWCA is a global network of women in coffee representing a variety of roles within the supply chain and industry. Our virtual, all-volunteer network advocates for the reduction of barriers to resources, while creating a forum in which we connect with other women throughout the coffee value chain. The goal is to empower women with the knowledge and monetary support that will shift their role from one of voiceless laborers to leaders of sustainable, profitable businesses.
We encourage members of the media to contact us for more information on IWCA. The information below is a summary of IWCA and our work.
