Patrícia Santana Silva
After my Bachelor of Laws, I joined Projeto Gauss as a mentor and volunteer. Gauss is a nonprofit organization that supports the development of underprivileged youngsters with scholarships in preparatory courses, mentorship, and multidisciplinary support.
This connection with education and social impact encouraged me to drop my career in the private and corporate sector to work with social impact at Lemann Foundation, where I lead the management of a network of more than 600 social impact leaders.
I am highly engaged in the topics of education, leadership development, diversity, equity, and inclusion, and have a strong passion for encouraging young people to dream. I am focused on working to remove barriers preventing people from accessing the best opportunities and reaching their highest potential and strongly believe that education is the key to reducing inequalities and promoting a better world.
