QUOTE FROM CEO ON BEING A WOMEN OWNED BUSINESS
Overcoming the challenges of managing a women-owned company brings us fulfillment both personally and professionally. We must lead and break paradigms, especially in a Latin American country where the male roles are still ingrained, but this is our time.
It is a time when social patterns are changing, when people are opening their minds to new possibilities, and when more and more support is generated from government entities, NGOs and organizations such as WEConnect International. All of this pushes us to move forward!
