Free event brings together female leaders and will select 50 girls for face-to-face mentoring
3rd edition of Young Women Summit includes panel discussions that promote diversity, encourage the formation of new leaders and open doors for women’s careers
Classrooms are theirs. Women are the majority in higher education and were responsible for 59% of diplomas in 2019according to a study released by the IBGE in 2021.
But, if the schooling data show an advance in women’s rights to education, the labor market numbers indicate that this evolution has not yet reached the corporate environment with due relevance. Also according to the IBGE, only 37.4% of the existing management positions in 2019 were held by women.
It does not stop there. According to a survey by Bain & Company with LinkedIn, only 3% of the presidents and 5% of the presidents of the board were female among the 250 largest Brazilian companies in this period.
In order to change this scenario and expand female leadership in organizations, the 3rd edition of the Young Women Summit takes place on the 29th and 30th of June in a way online and free.
Designed for young professional women, the event promoted by Fin4She will feature speakers in 7 panel discussions with the aim of helping to form new leaders from the beginning of their careers.
The event has the confirmed presence of the federal deputy and education activist Tabata Amaral; the executive director of the Agbara Fund, Aline Odara; Fleury CEO Jeane Tsutsui; the CEO of Banco BMG, Ana Karina; and several other executives.
The panels will be broadcast online and live. Check out the full schedule below. Young Women Summit:

In addition to the lectures that take place on the 29th, participants can be selected for JumpStart, a face-to-face mentoring with the 100 Women in Finance which aims to train selected young people.

To participate in the Young Women Summit on the 29th, and in Fin4She’s talent pool with the event’s partner companies, simply register on the website.
Carolina Cavenaghi, co-founder, CEO of Fin4She and creator of the Young Women Summit, points out that the objective of the event is to be an online forum focused on connecting young people with careers, possibilities and representation, to show that there are many spaces and paths that women can occupy in the labor market.
“At Fin4She, we realized that many women want to connect with other leaders and don’t know how. At the same time, companies say they have great difficulty in hiring girls with an interest in the market. We want to build this bridge, be disruptive and prepare young women for leadership, we need to open these doors”, says Cavenaghi.
