Women in Business in Brazil

Foreign business women are treated fairly and with respect which reflects a trend in Brazil which sees women increasingly joining the business world and making significant advances.

However, despite this trend, it is still fairly unusual to find senior female managers at the very highest levels of Brazilian-owned organizations.

This does not mean however that Brazilian men will forget old world traditions and may mean, for example, that they may not allow a woman to pay for a lunch or dinner and that women can expect to be complemented on their looks, appearance and dress sense.
