When talking about the future of work, “Women’s Universe” is the most representative dimension in social networks, as revealed by the research of the Instituto Plano de Menina in partnership with the consultancy Wiz&Watcher. In a 30-day analysis, 87,000 mentions of the topic were made, ie 17.25% of the total.
In addition, belonging is extremely important for young people. women from 18 to 25 years old, considering aspects such as having work as a means to get what you want and to make dreams come true, at the same time you experience a moment of maturation (working to support yourself financially) and resignation (giving up if you do what you like).
Data from Cia de Talentos confirm that 30% value experiences that support growth and make them feel part of the company. However, 43% agree that the company can do more to be inclusive and diverse.
“We’re not just talking about a new job or a new company, we’re talking about a new world, where belonging is a key issue. Girls want to feel included and for companies to develop activities in which they feel recognized and part of the company”, points out an excerpt from the report (see details below).
Officially, the launch of the research takes place this Saturday, 29, during the fifth edition of the Plano de Menina Festival, at Masp, in São Paulo.

Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, the journeys have taken place virtually, with more than 2 million girls impacted and more than 115 hired at global companies such as Ambev, The Body Shop, Unilever and others.
