MEET THE 13th CLASS OF THE CENTRAL AMERICA LEADERSHIP INITIATIVE (CALI)

The Central America Leadership Initiative (CALI) has announced its 13th Class of CALI Fellows, a group of high-integrity, entrepreneurial leaders with tremendous potential to positively influence social and economic development in their countries. CALI, in partnership with the Aspen Institute, provides them with an opportunity to pause and reflect on their values and an opportunity to act on them.

A group of extraordinary leaders, from each of Central America’s six countries (Panamá, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala), will gather at four seminars over the course of two years to explore their own leadership, core values, desired legacies, and vision for the region. They will commit to take action by launching a leadership venture that will have a positive impact on society. Their first seminar will take place in October at INCAE’s Costa Rica campus.
