International Women's day

On Friday March 7th, 2014 I was invited to talk at International Trade Club of Chicago Union League Club of Chicago for  International Women's Day. I was asked to represent Brazil & Spain women in architecture. It was a wonderful honor to talk infront of 400 women representing Chicago and the world. I presented a bit of my professional experience and told a short story about a turning point in my professional life  and specially about professional Brazilian women in architecture and environmental urban design and planning. For those of you who wish to hear the speech, we will down load it soon. Thank you for your support! The most rewarding thing was to meet at the end a few young Fulbright  scholar women from Latin America and other women who approached me to talk and share ideas. I hope I encouraged a few of them to continue working for a better place for women in the world's workforce.
