We are Bossa

We put creativity, data research and innovation to work in favor of diversity and interculturalism. We develop solutions to promote the integration of the international individuals who live, work and play in the U.S. From events to one-on-one programs, our goal is twofold: empower foreign-born professionals and to promote the sense of belonging among the international community.

We have Bossa

Bossa is a Brazilian word that means a certain pizzazz, talent, ability and style to do things in a lively and clever way — and that’s how we strive to do things!

 

We love what we do.

 

Our events and programs focus on people of all ages and backgrounds, including international and professional women, children, small business owners and entrepreneurs.

The Protagonist Experience

A good number of women relocate to the U.S. because their husbands have been transferred, and in doing so, they give up their careers in their homeland. Among these women, many do not feel well equipped to enter the American workforce. Whether it’s because they don’t know how to validate their diploma, can't speak English well enough or because they can't find time to look for answers, this inability to be professionally productive causes them a multitude of negative feelings.

These women have interrupted their careers to support their spouse's goals. Professionally, it is as if they have left the center stage to become the spectator of somebody else's performance. They are no longer the protagonist, but are relegated to a supporting role.

We’ve seen this happening one too many times. It has happened to us and to many of our friends. When we realized that there was no remedy for this collective pain, we decided to be on the frontline of this battle and become agents of change in our community. And so, The Protagonist Experience was born.
