On November 2nd, Bricksave COO, Sofia Gancedo was invited by Alabadas Online to meet Noel Vaeza, Director of Woman Program at United Nations.
It was an honor to meet and exchange ideas with a disruptive professional who has worked for decades in defense of women; specially in underdeveloped countries. The Woman Program in UN mandate is the equality of gender and the empowerment of women around the globe. With this in mind, Noel and her team manage US$ 450 MM, of which US$ 130 MM are assigned to refugee camps (60% are women); mainly in Syria, Libia and Yemen.
Some alarming statistics: 90% of girls in Egypt are circumcised today, only 20% of women around the world have a bank account (in most middle eastern countries it is forbidden), there is a 25% income breach in average between men and women.
According to Noel Vaeza, equality would increase Global GDP 14% by 2030 and her main private sponsor is Jack Ma ( Alibaba) who discovered the power of working with women and recommends hiring as many women as possible to guarantee the company's success.
