Call for proposals for a “Women in Finance” Charter in Brazil

Prosperity Fund Brazil seeks a supplier for the design and the launch of a “Women in Finance” Charter in Brazil.



As part of UK Government’s Prosperity Fund Green Finance Programme, the British Embassy in Brazil is commissioning a study with the following objectives:

1 - Strategic support for the design of a ‘Women in Finance Charter in Brazil’. The Charter will support gender balance across all seniority levels in financial services firms in particular.

  • the contracted partner will present an assessment of current gender inclusivity within financial services bodies in Brazil and provide recommendations on whether the charter would help achieve gender parity within the sector

  • the contracted partner will develop a charter, which resembles the Women in Finance Charter produced by HM Treasury in the UK. The partner will use this as a basis, but will adapt and produce a similar charter, which would be taken up by Brazilian firms/bodies

2 - Strategic support for the launch of the ‘Women in Finance Charter in Brazil’ in 2019.

  • the selected partner would be expected to engage with media and press outlets in preparation for the launch

  • the selected partner would present recommendations on how firms could implement policy/structural changes to comply with the charter
