The Women of Merit speakers for July are Fernanda & Taciana, from 'The Girls on the Road’ (www.thegirlsontheroad.com).
A few years ago, Fernanda and Taciana asked themselves how they could help make a difference in the gender equality movement. Instead of continuing only as observers, they decided to actively participate in empowering women. They wanted to find a way to use their experience, knowledge, and network to build something that could positively impact other women, as well as men. From July 2016 to October 2017, Fernanda and Taciana traveled the world, collecting stories and inspiration from women entrepreneurs that struggled, persevered, and succeeded in spite of all obstacles. As they actively reached out to women in various careers from all corners of the globe, they found one commonality: a lack of role models to inspire women to take that first step. 'The Girls on the Road' was created to tell these working women’s stories and share their experiences; to learn from women of all ages, and gain inspiration through their examples, stories, dreams, and accomplishments; to remind us everyday that the most important piece of our wardrobe is our confidence.
Fernanda & Taciana were recently featured in a Folha de São Paulo article: http://folha.com/no1951381
