COMPLIANCE WOMEN COMMITTEE
COMPLIANCE WOMEN COMMITTEE
WHO WE ARE
The Compliance Women Committee (“CWC”) was born from a casual phone call in which we discussed the need for women active in the compliance sector to come together as a group to pursue certain common goals, such as professional development, empowerment, capacity building and support for women seeking to take on leadership positions, including Board and C-Suite roles.
It was then that, in September 2017, our dream came true and, with only 11 members, we launched CWC in Brazil. Since then, our group has grown to comprise more than 700 female compliance professionals in and outside Brazil. Our members work in compliance for both the public and private sectors, including public bodies, law firms, consultancies, small businesses, associations, and multinational organisations.
