LALP Mexico Supporting Leadership for the Future

Miguel Martinez, GCL 2022, from Foro Valparaiso Mexico, in collaboration with Mario Romero, GCL 2007 and Managing Director of Impact Hub Mexico, organized the "Leadership for the Future" Conference for program participants of "Youth Building the Future.” This event, which was held on August 9, 2022, at Foro Valparaiso, convened members of the alumni network of both the Global Competitiveness Leadership (GCL) and Innovation and Leadership in Government (ILG) programs of the Georgetown University Latin America Leadership Program (LALP).

Without a doubt, I can say that the event fulfilled its objective by presenting a fresh and current approach on the subject, for the youth to rethink the application of leadership and the figure of the leader in their respective contexts, professional, political, academic, social and cultural. - Miguel Martinez, GCL 2022, Mexico​
