Women's forum to focus on Brazil

Sao Paulo - An international women's forum will be held here next month to focus on the crucial challenges Brazil faces as a rising emerging power.

"Achieving the country of the future" will be the theme of the Women's Forum Brazil 2012 gathering over 400 participants, including government officials, business executives, academics and civil society representatives June 4-5.

Maria das Gracas Foster, the chief executive of Brazil's state-owned oil giant Petrobras, and former environment minister Marina Silva will attend, according to the organisers.

The forum will focus on the importance of the new Brazilian middle class for the country's business growth and women leaders, with sessions on diversity, public education and entrepreneurship.

The Women's Forum for the Economy and Society, created in 2005, is the first association of its type at the international level.

Its last global meeting was in Deauville, France in October 2011, with the participation of a Brazilian delegation of more than 40 women business executives, politicians, scientists and artists.

An eighth edition of the global meeting is due October 10-12 in the north-western French city.
