International Women’s Day – March 8th

International Woman's Day

On March 8th, 2023 the FPCBP hosted its 16th annual IWD luncheon at Chiado sponsored by RBC.  Past President, Lena Barreto not only hosted our first IWD luncheon but generously sponsoredInternational Woman's Day this year’s event as well.

We were humbled to have Lena in attendance and to be able to continue her legacy.  The event was sold out weeks in advance and successfully raised funds to sponsor a scholarship at our Gala.

We were blessed to have Ema Dantas as our keynote speaker discussing how conquering Everest has impacted her!

We also had the honourable Consul Sofia Batalha grace us with her presence ensuring it was a memorable event for everyone in attendance.
