Grupo Mulheres do Brasil is a non-partisan group of Brazilian women created in 2013 in Brazil to advocate for female leadership in building a sustainable society and a better country. The Silicon Valley chapter is dedicated to inspiring and building bridges to fulfill this purpose. The group's vision for this project is for a strong community of Brazilian scientists around the world that inspires and empowers the development of science in Brazil focused on equity and diversity. We will start by empowering young Brazilian female scientists, creating role models and promoting networking opportunities between Brazilian scientists abroad.
