Helping American Indian Women Achieve their Business Goals
Project DreamCatcher is an entrepreneurship training program for American Indian businesswomen. The inaugural class was hosted on Thunderbird’s campus from Sunday, October 18 to Friday, October 23, 2015. Seventeen women entrepreneurs from the Hualapai, Tohono O'odham, San Carlos Apache, and White Mountain Apache tribes attended a week-long training, visited local women-owned businesses including the Fry Bread House and Co+Hoots, and were paired with mentors. The week culminated with presentations by the women and a graduation ceremony at Freeport-McMoRan’s Corporate Headquarters.
Project DreamCatcher is a fully-funded program of the Freeport-McMoRan Foundation and co-implemented by Thunderbird for Good, the social impact division of Thunderbird School of Global Management, with the support of the Phoenix Indian Center.
