Whether you are a stay-at-home dad, a high-powered female CEO, a male nurse, a transgender enlisted officer, or a career-focused mom, we all have something in common. We all want the best for ourselves and those we care about. However, just like the winning Women’s World Cup soccer team, the best way to achieve our goals is by helping each other. One person cannot carry the whole team to a win, but working together we have a fighting chance.
When you enter a new country, or even a new neighborhood, it’s common to feel a little lost. Why? Beyond the lack of familiar grocery stores, beloved brands, or favorite corner pubs - it’s really the loss of the well-known network of friends and co-workers you had elsewhere. While it’s possible to succeed in São Paulo on your own, you’ll find it easier to obtain your goals with a team of people than it is flying solo. Through the wins (and the losses) the best team is the team that works together towards a common goal.
Looking for your own team in the great city of São Paulo? Attend one of our WomenWork events, where a guest speaker (Woman of Merit) discusses her particular journey with us. We have a diverse range of women scheduled for the rest of 2019—three very different women from very different walks of life, all with an interesting story to tell.
Don’t miss out! Mark these Tuesday dates on your calendar: August 13th with Paula Chang, the Director of Institutional Relations at NGO Think Olga; September 10th with Dra. Márcia Rocha, Coordinator of Transempregos; and October 8th with Elisa Tawil, producer of 'Vieses Femininos’ Podcast. Save your spot at our upcoming WomenWork event by visiting amsoc.com.br/womenwork.
At WomenWork, we encourage social responsibility, sharing knowledge & experience for a better future, and the importance of any employment, whether paid or volunteer. The small fee to attend our events goes directly back to the greater São Paulo community. Since the launch of our event in May 2018, we have raised over R$2.200 in sponsorship funds for two girls at the American Society of São Paulo (AmSoc) Angel Party. If you’d like to find out more about this charitable event or any of the other charitable organizations that AmSoc supports, visit amsoc.com.br/how-to-help.
