Philanthropy is for everyone
Most philanthropists aren't famous. Patricia Villela Marino, President of the Humanitas360 Institute, a non-profit organization working to reduce violence and improve the quality of life of the people holds a conversation with Kim Meredith, the newest member of the Board of The Trust for the Americas. We hope the conversation will inspire people from all walks of life to take meaningful action to drive structural change in the Hemisphere.
Innovation and Inclusion in the Americas
Innovative practices to promote total inclusion for people with disabilities have proven to be strong drivers of development in other areas. In this conversation, María Catalina Saieh, President of Fundación Descubreme, together with Robert Ivanschitz, General Counsel at Microsoft and board member of The Trust, will address the importance of failure, the power of effective communication between civil society organizations, and the exponential effect of inclusion of people with disabilities in the workplace.
Future of Work and Skills of Tomorrow in the Americas
In recent months we have seen trends that we think would take years to normalize sinking in as the new standard. This conversation will discuss what we need to do as organizations and as individuals to stay professionally current in times of unprecedented digital acceleration.
Family and Early Childhood Development
Early childhood is decisive in the development of people's lives. How do we do so that in the turbulent world that we are in, we do not lose focus on this transcendent stage? In this conversation, Eva Fernández Garza, Fundación FEMSA's Early Childhood Manager, together with Mauricio Doehner, a member of our board of directors, will touch on topics such as education, family, and examples of resilience in the new normal.
