U.S. Embassy Funds Participation in Women2Women

For the second consecutive year, the U.S. Embassy will be funding the participation of three young Portuguese women in the Women2Women (W2W) conference, which will take place in Boston, from July 19 to July 28.

After a competitive selection process, the Embassy is going to take Eduarda Gameiro, from Torres Novas, Inês Sá from Mirandela, and Vanessa Quintal from Madeira to this conference, who will then become part of a global network of young promising women. All the participants will have the chance to learn about the current status of women and girls around the globe, and also about the social and economic success which is possible when women and girls have the opportunity to fully participate in all realms of society.

The selected participants will participate in cultural and team-building activities, as well as in seminars and workshops with prominent leaders in government, business and media.
