European Sustainability Academy (ESA) will host the 3rd Annual Women Empowerment Conference on September 25-26 at Chania, Crete. The conference will give women entrepreneurs the opportunity to contact influential business people around the globe. "Against the backdrop of the economic crisis in Greece, and its sheer need for business development and job growth, ESA founder Sharon Jackson is determined to provide inspiration and international business support to the local community and economy in manifold ways," according to the announcement. The goal is for it to evolve into a platform on which business-boosting and innovation initiatives for both men and women entrepreneurs will be built and launched, as to also attract international business leaders, academics and promote sustainable tourism in Crete. ESA provides training and development programmes for business managers, owners and organisational leaders to learn about sustainable business and Corporate Social Responsibility.
