Most writers will agree that the hardest part of writing is getting started. This can apply to many aspects of life, especially when it involves setting goals and reaching them. If you haven’t joined us yet at our WomenWork event, mark your calendars for September. Every other month, a guest speaker (Woman of Merit) will join us to discuss her particular journey. Find the inspiration you need to get started, and inspire others to do the same!
Unfortunately, our original speakers for our July event, Fernanda & Taciana, from 'The Girls on the Road’, were delayed overseas and needed to reschedule with us. Look for them at our November event!
Fortunately, Binka Le Breton, NGO President of Iracambi (en.iracambi.com), graciously offered to fill their spot. The event venue was packed, and Binka's presentation was informative and engaging.
Participate in our third WomenWork event, to be held on Tuesday, September 18, at 7pm. Cateto, located on R. Francisco Leitão, 272, in Pinheiros, is graciously providing us their upstairs space for our event. Space is limited, so be sure to RSVP at amsocwomenwork.eventbrite.com before September 17th. The Women of Merit speaker for September is Lucy Nunes, Superintendent of Chapel School.
Born in São Paulo, Brazil, and raised in Southern California, Lucy holds both US and Brazilian citizenship, speaks three languages, and has a diverse cultural background. As Superintendent of Chapel School, Lucy is enjoying her 29th year of a dynamic career in education. She is an impassioned child advocate and is dedicated to promoting excellence in education that fosters a culture of kindness, social activism, critical thinking, and creative problem solving. As an active member of various regional and international organizations for the betterment of education, Lucy also serves on the board of the American Society of São Paulo and volunteers at the Clube dos Vira Latas dog shelter.
There will be a short Q&A after Lucy's presentation, followed by networking, socializing, and a tasty beer or two to close out the evening!
At WomenWork, we encourage social responsibility, sharing knowledge & experience for a better future, and the importance of any employment, whether paid or volunteer. Since the launch of our event in May, we’ve raised over R$350 to sponsor Ana Carolina at the 2018 Angel Party. If you’d like to find out more about this charitable event or any of the other charitable organizations the American Society of São Paulo supports, visit amsoc.com.br/how-to-help.
