Talking about women working to change the world, we are extremely proud to announce that SheWorks! has been selected as one of the top five finalists from the Latin American region for the WE Empower UN SDG Challenge! 

The WE Empower Challenge is a global business competition for women entrepreneurs who are advancing the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and inspiring entire communities to achieve a better and more sustainable future by 2030. SheWorks! was selected as a finalist after the judges reviewed an impressive group of 153 initiatives from women leaders across the globe. 

As a social impact enterprise, we are humbled to stand among these powerhouse women as the top five finalists from the Latin American region sharing our commitment towards a more sustainable future. Every entrepreneur and their business solution deserves this recognition: Paulina Salach Antonetti (SPOON), Ana Cecilia Flores (Webee Corporation), Karla Ruiz Cofino (Digital Awareness), Elisamaria Torres (Froggin English for Kids).

Our focus will remain on creating a better working world for women, giving them access to jobs and education, enabling them to work on their own terms, remotely and transparently. We are just getting started! However, we are driven by each of the women who join us on this journey as we hear their stories, see their talent and experience their impact. 

This nomination speaks to the outstanding achievement, hard work, and powerful influence of our leadership team working tirelessly to make this dream a reality. We would not be here if it was not for those who are fully committed to our vision including, our co-founders, Susan Fonseca and Jessica Olivan, our investors, corporate Founding Sponsor EY, as well as our incredible Board of Advisors, partners and clients.
