Female entrepreneurs in Amazon are subject of “Amazon Dialogues” meeting

Fundação Getulio Vargas’ Sao Paulo School of Economics (FGV EESP) is holding another webinar in the “Amazon Dialogues” series, this time to discuss female entrepreneurs in the Amazon region. This public event will take place on April 29, at 7 p.m., on FGV’s YouTube channel.

Although women as a whole are now better educated then men in Brazil, research by the national statistics agency, IBGE, points to a broad spectrum of gender inequality in the job market. For example, among directors and managers, women are paid 61.9% of what men earn, on average. 

This event will highlight the voice of women who are running businesses in the Brazilian Amazon. Their experiences and guidance are inspiring the emergence of new female entrepreneurs, creating jobs and income alongside diversity and sustainability. 

Speakers:

  • Rebecca Garcia, business development director, GBR Componentes da Amazônia Ltda
  • Juliana Teles, founder of Impact Hub Manaus
  • Elizângela Cavalcante, farmer and head of a sustainable development reserve 

Moderators: 

  • Márcio Holland, professor at FGV EESP, coordinator of its Finance and Economics Master’s Program and columnist for Broadcast/Agência Estado
  • Daniel Vargas, professor at FGV EESP, coordinator of the FGV Bioeconomy Observatory and visiting scholar at the University of Cambridge, England, and the University of Bonn, Germany 

The event is part of the Amazon Dialogues, a digital platform to discuss topics related to sustainable socioeconomic development in the Brazilian Amazon with the whole of organized civil society.
