Participants of the ILA’s themed conference in our university
During the event organized by our university and the International Leadership Association (ILA), researchers, scholars, and entrepreneurs met to debate about Latin American leadership issues as perceived from different angles, such as gender, business, and student groups.
“In Latin America, people think that a president change equals a leadership change. From that perspective, we can say that there is no better time to carry out an event like this, having elected a new President in Peru,” noted Research Vice president Cynthia Sanborn during her presentation.

Cynthia Cherrey, President of ILA, in turn, noted that many of the problems affecting countries nowadays should be addressed from the perspective of leadership.
“Latin American problems are complex and challenging; the issues' overall status sometimes seems hopeless. Sometimes it is very difficult to think about the future when we are so concerned about the present, but it is still the best time for reflection,” manifested Cherrey during the event.
The Exploring Leadership in Latin America Conference brought together renowned experts on leadership matters such as María Emilia Correa, co-founder of System B, and Juana Bordas, President of Mestiza Leadership International.
