Founder, Cherie Blair Foundation for Women

Bio Current as of March 7, 2023

Leading King’s Counsel, wife of the former British Prime Minister and committed campaigner for women’s rights, Cherie set up the Cherie Blair Foundation for Women in 2008 to support women to start, grow and sustain successful businesses in low and middle income countries so that they can contribute to their economies and have a stronger voice in their societies.

Cherie is actively involved in the Foundation, generously and tirelessly giving her time and resources to ensure its success. Travelling internationally to visit projects and donors and to advocate for women entrepreneurs globally, she is an ambassador for women entrepreneurs everywhere, encouraging other non-profits, corporations and governments to do more to support women business owners.

Cherie was awarded a CBE in the 2013 New Year’s Honours List for services to women’s issues and to charities in both the UK and overseas.
