CWIA – The Cartier Women´s Initiative are registration open

Cartier is open until August 14 for the 2020 edition of CWIA – The Cartier Women´s Initiative. The project, which began in 2006 and is a partnership between Cartier, INSEAD Business School and McKinsey & Company, aims to support women who are running creative, financially viable companies that are, somehow, giving solutions for the future of our planet, reaching as many people as possible.

During its 13 years, CWIA has applied for more than 18,000 women around the world, 205 companies that have generated more than 7,000 jobs, operating in 52 countries and supported by 400 members, including jury and coaches. Within these numbers, Brazil had a winner, Candice Pascoal, in 2017 with the company Kickante. According to Candice, “The Cartier award is much more than financial value. We are a true community of women breaking paradigms, helping each other and, most importantly, changing the way we do business around the world.”

I had the opportunity to have a coach, who accompanied me for almost 4 months, helping me to rethink some business strategies and especially acting in my preparation for the final presentation! In addition, networking with the finalists is very rich. I feel like I’ve won friends for life, “says Tatiana.
