Women’s Leadership in Latin America

Latin America, with its history of female heads of state, seems to be a rising global leader in terms of notable women in top-level leadership roles. What is the region’s secret sauce? Does this phenomenon translate to the empowerment of women throughout Latin American societies? And are women rising to the top across sectors?

On May 31, 2017, the Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center held a discussion on the realities of women in business and politics throughout the region and discussed concrete tools to guide the empowering of female leadership. The event launched our latest report, “Women’s Leadership in Latin America: The key to growth and sustainable development”.
