FLAGSTAFF, AZ – August 15, 2018 – Members of the Native Women Entrepreneurs of Arizona have been invited as keynote speaker and panelist to the Global Women’s Trade Summit in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, September 6 - 8, 2018. This annual summit brings together international thought leaders, successful women entrepreneurs and high-level corporate figures who will share their journeys and experiences.

Local media production company, CFproductions LLC, owner and founder of the Native Women Entrepreneurs of Arizona (NWEAZ), Cherylee Francis (Navajo), along with Tinhorn Consulting LLC, owner April Tinhorn (Hualapai/Navajo/Chinese), will travel to Mongolia. The acceptance of their invitation not only means representing Native women from their tribal communities and Arizona, but also all American women entrepreneurs.

“It is an honor and a tremendous responsibility for our group to be U.S. representatives at the summit. As keynote speaker, I see this as an opportunity to convey my small business experience, express our tribal values, and to share the stories of our native women entrepreneurs. This is also an opportunity to promote Native American women and the importance of how indigenous trade and commerce has always been apart of our communities. The value of this event is for our entrepreneurial business women to join with the Mongolian women and to explore new partnerships strengthening the invaluable experience of cultural exchange on an international level”, said Cherylee Francis.

Adds Francis, “While the keynote speaker and panelist accommodations and registration will be provided by the summit, donations are welcome to go towards airfare and other traveling expenses. Please consider donating in support of representing American Women Entrepreneurs!”
