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.

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.
