A New Decade of Opportunity for Latin America

POSTPONED  | Washington D.C.

More information about the rescheduled event will be available in the coming weeks.  


Ongoing social unrest and persistent economic stagnation have dominated the political landscape in Latin America over recent months. With growing inequality and weakening democracy, discontentment among Latin America’s people is only on the rise.

Against this challenging backdrop, there’s a huge opportunity to unite the private sector, civil society organizations, governments, and other critical actors to work together to create a more prosperous outlook for the continent. 

Concordia and Georgetown University’s Latin America Leadership Program (LALP) will convene emerging leaders, scholars, and social innovators, alongside private sector leaders and government officials, in Washington D.C. to share insights on the current socio-economic and geopolitical outlook in the Americas at large.

Featured speakers include Luis Alberto Moreno, President of the Inter-American Development Bank, and Lorenzo A. Mendoza, CEO of Empresas Polar, among others, who will spark conversations around:

  • Youth Perspectives on the Future
  • Globalization, Competitiveness & Governability in Latin America 
  • Youth Entrepreneurship & Foreign Investment in Latin America
