BrazilMTMJJ2017June 30, 2017. Johnson and Johnson, WEConnect International’s corporate member, opened its doors to a group of 11 certified women business enterprises to explain all the steps to be taken to become a supplier. They met with 14 buyers who are looking to source from more women-owned companies. It was a unique opportunity for the women business owners to present their value proposition and get to establish valuable business connections. 

Rosana Comunica1(July 26, 2017) Comunica was established in February 2013 and certified by WEConnect International in October 2016. It provides services in corporate communication: actions of internal communication, website development, publications, press office, and more. See how WEConnect International has helped Rosana grow her business!

Why did you become certified by WEConnect International?

I considered the WEConnect International certification an excellent opportunity do establish contact with big corporations, obtain new knowledge and exchange experiences with other women business owners. I took part in some meetings organized by WEConnect International right at the beginning. Recently, I had a great opportunity to run for a place in Monsanto's Mentoring Program.

HELENISA STELA PROSPERO BRASIL02(June 20, 2017) On June 19 in Las Vegas, WEConnect International hosted more than 200 corporate representatives, women business owners, partners and other champions of women’s economic empowerment. During the evening reception, Elizabeth A. Vazquez, CEO and Co-Founder of WEConnect International, announced the top five winners of the first ever WEConnect International photo contest for women business owners. 

Among the five finalists was Helenisa Stela Prospero, Director of certified women's business enterprise Optec, based in São Bernardo do Campo, Brazil. With 10 years of experience in the pharmaceutical market, today Helenisa not only serves clients but also manages her business: cabling, information security, moving from a large data center and IT consulting, are the solutions she knows and offers to her clients.

Helenisa's photo - "Whoever said that IT is not a woman's thing, doesn’t know Helenisa Prospero from Optec" - was a favorite among the WEConnect International team because it demonstrated that our women business owners are breaking gender stereotypes every day.

The competition isn’t over yet, though!
