We kindly invite you to our Business Meeting
Women in the German-Latin American Economy
– Economic independence and independent livelihood of women.
Worldwide success stories. –

Thursday, 10th December 2020 I 3 – 4.30 pm CET

The year 2020, in particular, has shown how vulnerable the world is and how important jobs that are predominantly carried out by women can become. The now revived discussion about a fairer payment for these “systemically important" jobs clearly shows how far away we still are from equal opportunities for men and women. It is not only in Germany that women still work too often in precarious conditions, too rarely in management positions and are often paid less than men. However, inclusive, economically sustainable and global growth without the economic empowerment of women is doomed to failure. There is an undeniable link between economic independence and the participation of women in economic development and especially in innovation.

During this event, we want to talk with women in leadership positions about their personal journey. Dr. Annette Beller from B. Braun Melsungen and Svenja Ahlburg from WILO will present their activities in the energy and health sector in relation to Latin America.
Further insights will be provided in the discussion round by Ana Fontes, expert for women's empowerment and female entrepreneurship. She founded Rede Mulher Empreendedora, the first and largest network to support female entrepreneurs in Brazil. On the other hand, Arthur Darboven of Benecke Coffee will give insights into his experiences working with women's cooperatives in Latin America.
What influence can female role models have on economic cooperation? How can the commitment of female and male entrepreneurs be mutually strengthened? This is what we would like to discuss with our panel guests.
We are looking forward to your participation and an exciting discussion.
