BUSINESS EDUCATION FOR WOMEN
DreamBuilder harnesses the flexibility of online business skills development and certification to help women entrepreneurs achieve economic success for themselves, their families, and their communities. Sponsored by Freeport-McMoRan Foundation, the program leverages the expertise of Thunderbird School of Global Management, a world leader in international management education.
Freeport-McMoRan, a premier natural resource company, announced its DreamBuilder vision during the 2011 Clinton Global Initiative. Pilot programs were launched the following year in Chile and Peru, two countries where Freeport-McMoRan operates mining facilities. Since then DreamBuilder has expanded to become a centerpiece of Freeport-McMoRan’s broad commitment to investing in sustainable community development. Wherever Freeport-McMoRan operates, the company works to ensure that girls and women have suitable, relevant, and functional opportunities to be full participants in economic development and attaining greater levels of prosperity.
