This program has a focus on eco- nomic development opportunities for women in developing countries. There are 14 sites internationally from Brazil to China. Greene works with these sites to develop curriculum guidelines as part of their con- tinuous improvement process. Both of these programs get to the heart of Greene's real passion: women and entrepre- neurship. She co-founded the Diana Project, a program that focuses on how women obtain capital to fund businesses. Greene feels that it is important not to only focus on women starting businesses but on growing these businesses as well. Named after Diana, the goddess of the hunt, the Diana Project is focused on research, but also connects with the business owners. "Overall, whether dealing with women business owners or small businesses in gen- eral, it is important to combine research, practice, and policy," says Greene, who tes- tified before the Senate Small Business and Entrepreneurship Roundtable in April. There, she talked about different types of resource providers and the different means of providing capital. The Senate committee is now reviewing the research to decide what role, if any, the government should play. 85 fall 2012 | WellesleyWeston Magazine
