WEConnect International no Brasil

BrasilLaunchValorizar a diversidade e a inclusão global de mulheres na cadeia de suprimentos é a principal missão da WEConnect International, organização sem fins lucrativos criada em 2009, em Washington, DC. A iniciativa partiu de um grupo de grandes corporações interessadas em implementar políticas de inclusão de mulheres na cadeia de suprimentos, mas não conseguiam achar empreendedoras que cumprissem determinados critérios, criando-se, assim, a necessidade de formar uma base de fornecedoras. No Brasil, o programa teve início em abril de 2014, com respaldo financeiro da Fundação Rockfeller e Conselho Consultivo no Brasil composto por membros da IBM, Accenture, Cummins e ExxonMobil.

Diversos estudos apontam que, nos últimos anos, as mulheres ganharam espaços expressivos no mercado de trabalho, na política e na vida social. O empreendedorismo feminino aqui no Brasil vem crescendo em consequência desse cenário, e ter o próprio negócio passa a ser uma estratégia de vida, mais do que ter uma ocupação ou um meio apenas para ganhar dinheiro. Saiba mais.

On September 10, 2014, Women Business Entrepreneurs (WBEs) in Brazil received a short workshop on Human Capital in companies in the growth stage led by Ann Williams -- a woman entrepreneur who grew her company from 3 to 160 employees in 5 years. Several of the attendees are in this phase or will enter it soon. Most of the WBEs met each other for the first time and exchanged ideas, contacts, accounting tips, and more. The program united the group under the WEConnect International name and created ‘ambassadors’ for WEConnect International in Brazil.

Brazilian WBOs network with corporate leaders at WEConnect International Forum

Sao Paulo – Over a hundred Brazilian women business owners gathered on April 7th for the 2nd Annual WEConnect International Forum to share experiences and network with corporate leaders.

“It is very inspiring for the thriving community of women business owners in Brazil to get the opportunity to interact directly with global corporate leaders,” said Jennifer Iverson, Executive Director for Brazil of WEConnect International.

The event, held at the Renaissance Hotel in Sao Paulo, was generously supported by the Rockefeller Foundation and Accenture, a WEConnect International corporate member.

Keynote speakers and participants stressed the role of corporations in the development and promotion of women’s economic empowerment. Elizabeth A. Vazquez, CEO of WEConnect International, got the discussion underway.

 

Representatives of Accenture, IBM, Marriott, Cummins, and Intel offered details of their purchasing processes in one panel, while another featured success stories of Brazilian women entrepreneurs. Johnson & Johnson and Pfizer were also represented at the event.

The forum in Brazil was the first of three that WEConnect International is holding in Latin America in the first part of 2014. The other events are scheduled for April 9th and April 11th in Santiago, Chile, and Lima, Peru, respectively.
