Learning from Innovative Latin American Leaders

  • Luce Hall 203 34 Hillhouse Ave. New Haven, CT (map)

How are changemakers in Latin America leading innovation across the fields of human rights, natural resource management, and government? Join us for a panel with two World Fellows — Sylvia Aguilera Garcia, former Executive Director of the Center for Civic Collaboration in Mexico, and Julio Guzman, leader and founder of Peru’s Partido Morado and former Secretary General at the Office of the Prime Minister — as they discuss their journeys, the importance of innovation in their work, and their perspectives on the future of innovation in Latin America and around the globe.

This event, produced in partnership with the Council on Latin American & Iberian Studies and La Casa Cultural: the Latino Cultural Center at Yale, is part of the Global Innovation Series, an exciting new partnership between Yale’s Maurice R. Greenberg World Fellows Program and the Tsai Center for Innovative Thinking at Yale (Tsai CITY) established by 2017 World Fellow and Tsai CITY Innovator in Residence Baljeet Sandhu. As part of the Knowledge Equity Initiative, the series involves a set of events and discussions hosted around Yale’s campus to explore and celebrate the innovative work of groundbreaking global changemakers across industries, geographies, and cultures. Each event is built in partnership with other centers across the university to connect World Fellows with the community and to encourage multidisciplinary debate and knowledge exchange.
