Amanda Santos speaking at International Womens Day #Pressforprogress

As the only woman nominated as a finalist in the  Business Category for the 2017 Welly awards, Amanda knows we have a long way to go regarding gender equality, but believes the problem go deeper in our business systems and structures.  


With a belief that as CEO’s, leaders and business professionals we can change our environments to create more balanced and fair workplaces, Amanda shared her real-life examples of how she has had to implement those changes in her work and companies.
