Vetor Brasil Annual Report

2021 was a challenging year for Brazil and the world. The pandemic and all its social and economic consequences remained relevant. It was demanded from the entire society to adapt.

We have redesigned old projects, developed seven more that we will talk about throughout this report, and which we are very proud of. We gained even more recognition - including internationally, in addition to the support of new donors and, above all, many learning opportunities.

We are sure that 2022 will be an year full of transformations, both for the public management and for Vetor Brasil.

who
we are

We are a civil society organization, non-profit, supra-partisan, that identifies and develops representative and engaged professionals to increase the efficiency of the public sector and reduce social inequalities in the country. The solutions to the most urgent social emergencies are in governments and to put them into practice, qualified people are needed.

We believe that diverse and well-prepared people in action is the key to a virtuous cycle of positive social impact on governments.

Executive Board

The only deliberative instance of Vetor Brasil. It is legally responsible for strategic decisions, such as those involving partnerships with governments and other civil society organizations, including the use of the organization's human resources, material and financial.

Along with a team of more than 40 diverse and engaged employees who made Vetor happen.

Fiscal Council

Elected by the Executive Board, is an institution with a statutory provision, responsible for approving or disapproving its accounts entries annually, supervising the application of the organization's resources and its compliance instruments.

axes

Public administration is made up of people. In this sense, our work is focused on finding and qualifying people for the development of socio-emotional and 21st-century skills. We believe that starting from people management, we will be able to contribute to the enhancement and effectiveness of government actions and in the construction and implementation of public policies.

Our work consists mainly of developing professionals from various sectors who work or wish to work in the public sector. After all, our goal is to support governments in building high-performance teams.

The actions of Vetor Brasil, always through people, are focused on four main pillars: People management with a focus on education departments; Diversity, equity and inclusion in governments; Strengthening leadership for the public sector; Changing the culture of people management in governments.

Education professionals have enormous scaling power, because they are themselves, directly or indirectly, developing our youth. This makes it even more necessary to foster best practices in people management for our public education school system, and within this objective that the Education axis is born.

We want to support the construction of leadership culture and transformation of education through people, creating a new paradigm of talent management at all levels of the public system, from departments to schools.

Leaders of Learning
education

The Learning Leaders program aims to support the development of educational leaders, of medium and high seniority, in the State departments of the Brazilian Education System, so that they lead transformations envisioning building coherent educational policies aligned with the National Common Curriculum Base (BNCC).

The first class was supported and implemented in partnership with the Lemann Foundation.

To achieve the goal, we selected 31 public professionals from State departments of Education to participate in a development program, with the intention of strengthening their theoretical and practical knowledge. The Learning Leaders Program was designed as an initiative that unites quality training, practical application, experience exchange spaces and tutoring for managers.

The program develops 31 leaders in education responsible for formulating and implementing actions in the pedagogical areas of 14 different states.

Graduated in History with a master's degree in Education and doctoral student in Education with a focus on research in teacher training, curriculum and education in ethnic-racial relations.

For almost two years, she has served as General Coordinator of Full Time Highschool and Professional Education of the State of Minas Gerais and was one of the selected participants in the Leaders of Learning Program.

"Participating in the Program was essential to acquire even more knowledge and experience, consequently providing possible articulations and application in practice (hands on!).

My tutor was fantastic, an active listener and incredibly sensitive, as well as with extensive experience. It allowed me to visualize a new journey, mostly still blurred until I find my path, as well as recognizing my developed strengths and those that need to be better explored."

Mapping of Skills for School Management (Beta)

We believe that quality education can bring new possibilities to society. And we know that the quality of education is directly linked to the skills of a good leader. With this challenge, we developed, in partnership with the Unibanco Institute and the Lemann Center for Leadership for Equity in Education, an automated tool for Mapping Skills for School Management.

Together we are developing a 100% online methodology - based on the Common National Matrix of Competencies of the School Principal that was approved in 2021 by the National Education Council (CNE) - to assess the degree of individual capacity development of school leaders.

The first beta phase of this tool was conducted in November of 2021, with the participation of 49 school managers. Each received individual feedback, containing a diagnosis of their skills and reflections to guide their development.

The inputs collected through this test will be used to improve the methodology for mapping competencies and direct training actions for managers. In addition, through this initiative, we hope to create a basis for future development, an online platform for diagnosing school management competencies, which can support and accelerate the rise of professionals with high potential for such positions.

We want more teachers and other education professionals pursuing management careers to change their communities, dream about leadership, and know that they have the necessary conditions and tools for it. We hope that in this way, a natural path will be opened for the qualification and continuous mapping of new talents.

Residency Program in
Public Management Full-Time High School (EMTI)

The Residency Program in Public Management is an innovative initiative that combines the practical experience of professional performance in government with academic training in the format of a lato sensu postgraduate degree in public management, certified by the Singularidades Institute. Through the program, we combine robust training in the implementation of educational policies, with support for governments on site.

The first class of the residency focused on strengthening two educational policies: BNCC (National Common Curricular Base) and EMTI (Full-Time High School), and had the support of the Sonho Grande institute and the Lemann Foundation, held from May 2020 to May 2021 with 30 participating residents working in 26 federal units..

The success of the project culminated in the renewal of this partnership with the Sonho Grande institute to promote a new class, launched in May 2021. The current Residency Program in Education is focused on strengthening a specific educational policy: Full-Time High School (EMTI). The new EMTI Residency will last 18 months and has 15 residents working in 14 federal units.

The residency program also has a tutoring project that promotes close monitoring of residents with the objective of supporting their day-to-day challenges and enhancing their impact on governments.

Giovanna Louzada - ES

Planning and Management - Advisory for Full-Time Education at Espírito Santo State Department of Education.

"I led the planning and execution of the project “Successful Practices Webinar” of the Full-Time Education Program of Espírito Santo. This project involved the mobilization of the entire ecosystem of full-time schools and we collected 260 good practices. In addition, it was necessary to mobilize the full-time team, as everyone read and evaluated the practices submitted to choose those that would be in the live events. It was very rewarding to make my first deliveries as a resident and see that they had an impact on the network and that schools, and the other SEDU teams, loved the webinars.”

Diversity, equity and inclusion in governments

We value diversity in all dimensions and in each of our activities and actions. Allied to equity and inclusion, it is a fundamental way of promoting high performance in the public sector and building public policies for all people. We believe that the more diverse a government team is, the more representative this management will be and, consequently, we will have more efficiency in their actions. Therefore, we support the recruiting, selection and development of black, female and LGBTQIA+ leaders.

In this cycle from 2021 to 2023 we chose to focus on the axis of racial equity in the public sector, therefore our programs are designed to support the increased representation of black people in public sector leadership.

Check out the main highlights of 2021 on this axis!

Ubuntu
Program

Although the black population represents approximately 55% of the whole country, it also has the highest rates of unemployment and informality compared to whites.

Given this scenario, we understand the urgency to advance in the creation of public policies that can promote active citizenship through projects structured from an anti-racist agenda, which seeks the emancipation of black people.

We believe that, by training black leaders, we are contributing to representativeness in governments, with the objective of breaking inequalities and strengthening democracy.

Ubuntu also encouraged several network actions, mainly fostering the connection between the program participants and other networks of public professionals.

Ubuntu Philosophy aims for rescuing the concept of “community” to achieve democracy, that is, a multiplicity of singularities. To this end, equality is a fundamental and conditional principle for the existence of the other.

"I felt welcomed throughout the program, because people in charge always checked how participants were feeling, in addition to encouraging moments of exchange, showing themselves available to help. The attention to detail also impressed me. The teachers were excellent, with good didactics, with easy ways to bring the content and generate reflections (each class was better than the other; the first one on the learning track was incredible). The sharing of the class was something enriching, I learned so much in these moments of exchanges, about myself as a black woman and about other experiences ”

Managers for
Racial Equity

And to continue supporting an increasingly diverse and inclusive culture in the public sector, we started the Training Managers for Racial Equity Program, in partnership with Microsoft. The goal is to train white and non-white public sector managers, able to contribute to racial equity, becoming ambassadors for diversity, equity and inclusion within the public sector.

The pilot class was opened to 40 participants with 100% online training, willing to be an active and practical learning journey, through multimedia content and interactive environments to host different profiles and seniorities of public managers.

The Program was designed to be a complementary initiative to Ubuntu and has a 16-hour training in the pillars of racial literacy, long-term vision and leadership, so the managers can act to transform the culture of governments around racial equity.

14 states

Our focus is to work for a new model of people management in the Brazilian public sector, with the objective of attracting, developing and retaining leaders prepared and dedicated to delivering the best public services to citizens. We also work to create an ecosystem of civil society and private sector organizations that consider the training of leaders in the public sector and the third sector as a priority.

The Public Management Trainee (TGP) is the pioneering initiative in Vetor Brasil with which we attract, pre-select, allocate and develop people to occupy positions in the public sector.

The TGP is designed especially for those professionals who are beginning their careers, recent graduates, or close to graduating, in any undergraduate course, and who wish to contribute to changing the country. Among our alumni, 93% recommend the program, while we have the approval of 90% of the governments served.

"I always studied in public schools and when I joined the Federal University I realized the importance and privilege that it meant, especially coming from a family in which my parents could not even complete the elementary school. From then on, I established as a life commitment the opportunity to repay society for everything that was invested in me. Vetor Brasil was responsible for bringing me back to the public sector and helping to build another piece of this dream.”

Residency Program in
Public Management Novotec of the State of São Paulo

The Residency Program in Public Management - Novotec is an innovative partnership, inspired by the medical residency model, which enables learning in practice.

In 2020, the Government of the State of São Paulo started a new modality of the Novotec program, the Integrated Novotec. In this modality, the student attends the technical course integrated with their regular classes and subjects of High School, both in the state school and in the same period that they study (morning, afternoon or evening), over the three years. In the end, they finish the term with a technical diploma and a certificate of completion.

The program combines a day-to-day experience with a lato sensu postgraduate degree with robust training in public administration and management skills. The objective is to provide content and tools so that the resident can generate impact from the early beginning of the activities. Throughout the program, the 18 residents will work with the public department (SDE) up to 40 hours per week, identifying seven bottlenecks and proposing sustainable solutions to challenges in implementing the program, in addition to directly supporting the achievement of the goals set for 2022.

However, data collected by the Department of Economic Development (SDE) show that only 8% of high school students in the public school system access public vocational education, while in countries such as Colombia and Chile, this average reaches 26%.

Through the complementation of the development of specific technical skills and the accumulation of practical learning, the young participants of Novotec have the opportunity to approach the job market through internship opportunities for high school students. The offer of vocational courses represents, therefore, a strong instrument to mitigate inequalities, enhance the success of young people directly responsible for the economic development of the country and, thus, transform the social bases for career success from a range of possibilities.

"It has been a very challenging experience, especially for exercising various individual skills and competencies. Some of these skills were asleep, which along my trajectory have been without stimulation, and others are being developed throughout the process of self-awareness within the project. ”

Central
Vetor

Vetor Brasil identified a curious phenomenon regarding both the issues of job offering and the search for vacancies that meet people's professional ambitions. Recruiters feel that the search for a qualified professional that fulfills the requirements is increasingly exhausting, while candidates have the impression that there are more challenges to achieving their dream job.

In this regard, at the end of 2021, the Central Vetor was launched, aiming to facilitate the recruitment process and make it more agile and democratic. The goal is to be a bridge for agents of change to meet. The Central Vetor is oriented to leaders who recruit people for middle management positions and professionals with experience seeking opportunities in public management and social impact.

When everyone works towards the same goal, it is possible to make the necessary changes for positive transformation in the public sector. Therefore, the objective of Vetor Brasil is to act by accelerating and leading the change in people management culture in the public sector. This happens through the transfer of knowledge, as well as the awareness and engagement of public leaders for a strategic performance in people management, contributing to the development of professionals in the public sector.

GYN Talents
Goiânia Selection

GYN talents Selections is the result of a partnership with Vamos – Transforming Leadership in the Public and Third Sector, a collective group that brings together the Lemann Foundation, Humanize Institute and Republica.org to improve people management in the public sector. With the support of Vamos, the partnership – which had no costs to the city hall – developed methodologies and structured good practices for a high-performance people management model in the municipality.

Started in March and completed in June 2021, the project consisted in supporting the government to attract and pre-select professionals to the Office of Strategic Priorities, with vacancies in 16 positions, which were grouped into three different selection processes, according to the level of their seniority. Altogether, 48 finalists were pre-selected (with two or three candidates for each position). We also prepared a report for each finalist.

Strategic Support
to Rio Grande do Sul

We believe that changing the culture in people management can leverage the public sector and with the partnership of Vamos, an alliance formed between Humanize, Lemann Foundation and República.org, we operated systemically with the government of Rio Grande do Sul (RS).

In 2019, we started working along with the Department of Planning, Governance and Management (SPGG) and the Undersecretary of People Management and Development (SUGEP) to create and implement the QualificaRS, a program to attract and pre-select leaders of the government of Rio Grande do Sul.

The project selected 30 regional education coordinators from the Department of Education, besides strategic employees in the area of people management. In the following year based on a diagnosis from the department, the government of RS acted in the internalization of this process. In 2021, SUGEP dedicated itself to understanding what it means to be strategic in people management, with the structuring of the undersecretary and the execution of the Project Envolver - Together for the Evolution of RS, focused on organizational culture.

So far, 120 public professionals have been directly involved, about 75 hours of synchronous dedication in 35 workshops and meetings, 5 months of activities, 27 state departments involved, mobilization of senior management, matrix of capacities for structuring the management competencies of public servers, approval of the 2022-2024 plan with the current governor (mandate until March 2022) Eduardo Leite.

Based on the progress made by the government over the last few years, we implemented a diagnosis of needs, in order to take the next steps towards consolidating the structure for strategic people management and changing the culture desired. Accordingly, we carried out actions on 4 work fronts with a training perspective and the construction of tools oriented to the structuring of the department: 1) Workshops in Competence Management; 2) Workshops in Management Performance; 3) Leadership Development Workshops; 4) Perpetuation strategies. With the facilitation of Vetor Brasil, the results were: SUGEP and the representatives of the sectoral HRs trained for implementation, with the definition of a state matrix of competencies and the implementation plan for performance management.

The workshops were important spaces for consolidating the role of SUGEP as a central entity for people management and strengthening the network of HR managers.

Vetor Brasil believes that, with these actions, the public servers will feel recognized and motivated by these improvements. We want other governments to be inspired and recognize us as an important agent of change in organizational culture management.

Strategic Support
Strategic Support

Our main goal is to support governments to institutionalize strategic management practices. People management is considered strategic when it operates in the subsystems of attraction, selection, performance, development and engagement of people based on technical and behavioral skills, aligned with the management strategy and sectoral demands. However, there is a consensus in the literature and in the people management ecosystem in the public sector that human resources areas need to evolve in strategic performance.

In partnership with Vamos, we conducted interviews with 20 professionals, including specialists, companies and public managers from 13 municipalities selected according to criteria such as size and regional diversity (Maceió - AL, Recife - PE, Ananindeua - PA, Santos - SP, Niterói - RJ, São José do Rio Preto - SP, São Paulo - SP, Caruaru - PE, Fortaleza - CE, Palmas - TO, Vitória - ES, Blumenau - SC, Sobral - CE) to perform a diagnosis in people management processes. Additionally, we reviewed studies of people management in the public sector and market segmentation, with the analysis of the socioeconomic and management indicators.

Based on the results, we mapped common problems and opportunities to governments, which resulted in a plan to implement strategic actions between 2022 and 2024.

Recognition and Awards

Vetor Brasil is one of the 100 best NGOs in the country:

The recognition is made for its good practices in matters such as governance, transparency, communication and financing.

Donation of resources - Mackenzie Scott

One of Vetor Brasil's greatest achievements was having received a BRL $4.2 million donation from the American philanthropist, MacKenzie Scott. The contribution was made after a rigorous investigation of Bridgespan, an internationally renowned consulting firm that assists Scott in her donations. They evaluated the trajectory, strategic planning, finances, projects and results of the organization, which proves our transparency.

This was MacKenzie Scott's first donation to an organization outside the United States.

Vetor Brasil receives the Seal of Racial Equality granted by the City of São Paulo:

The Racial Equality Seal Program was created by municipal law in December 2015 and regulated two years later. After a detailed analysis by the Committee of Affirmative Actions to Promote Ethnic-Racial Equality, 30 companies or institutions were considered in full compliance with the rules and, consequently, deserving of the Municipal Seal of Racial Equality.

Financial sustainability

Institutional donations are fundamental resources to enable the financial sustainability and maintenance of the organization, ensuring the necessary conditions to implement solutions of excellence that have already impacted more than 220 governments and established a network of more than one thousand public servers. In 2021, we had the support of 9 legal entities, including civil society organizations and the private sector, and 90 private individuals who believe in our work and dream with us to create a better country through the formation of leaders in the Brazilian government.

If you are a representative of an organization interested in supporting us institutionally, please contact us at [email protected]

On our website, you can offer support with different amounts, on a recurring or occasional basis, as a private individual. All donations are important and assist the training of public leaders.

We also have direct and restricted financial support for the implementation of specific solutions. These donations are fundamental because the challenge of combating inequalities by developing leaders to deliver efficient public policies to those who need them the most is long and complex. Therefore, it is essential to implement directed solutions to solve the critical points to achieve our mission. By supporting projects, the donated resource is implemented directly in the execution of a defined solution to solve specific challenges in our axes: education, diversity, leadership training and change in the culture of people management. In 2021, 10 organizations supported us by funding specific projects.

If you are a representative of an organization and are interested in supporting any of the listed initiatives in our report or want to approach us to co-create one, please contact [email protected]

Our Ambassador Program is designed for private individuals who wish to engage more deeply with the transformation of public administration through supporting Vetor. Ambassadors are people who contribute significantly to boosting the financial sustainability of Vetor Brasil, raising the level of our maintenance resources and strategic investments. They are also people willing to contribute so much with their experiences and engagement in the construction and resumption of a democratic, developed, and less unequal Brazil. In this way, our operations will remain independent and sustainable.

The Vetor Brazil Ambassador Program receives annual donations from private individuals and covers 10% of the organization's budget. We provide quotas of BRL $50,000, where each donor can contribute from one to five quotas.

Ambassadors have exclusive advantages that help us in taking our cause further. If you are interested in learning more about how to integrate the program and its benefits, please contact us at [email protected]
