Women's Leadership Program in Central America 

 

Human Resources teams from Nicaragua and Costa Rica have been promoting a project since last year called the "Women's Leadership Program." The objective is to strengthen ourselves as a community of women who build each other up by learning from one another's personal or professional experiences, thus creating empathy, respect, and mutual support.

 

To date, it has become a regional program, as they have had the participation of women not only from Nicaragua and Costa Rica but also from Honduras and Mexico. Last Friday, they started the second phase of the program, where initially they will be addressing topics focused on "Emotionally Intelligent Women."

 

They have created a website that contains all the information about the program, the topics covered in all sessions, a photo gallery, and educational material/tools for women to put into practice what they have learned in every aspect of their lives.

ECOM Risk Management 1st Get Together meeting

 

 

In June, ECOM Risk Management hosted its first global Get Together meeting in Geneva. This event marked the 10th anniversary of our risk management operations following the acquisition of Armajaro and provided an excellent opportunity for our team to connect in person after years of growth and virtual interactions. It was also a chance to introduce Geneva to those who had never visited Switzerland.

 

Our meetings were productive, fostering team synergies and allowing us to outline our strategic goals for the coming years. ECOM Risk Management stands out for its cohesion and team spirit, with everyone united around one main objective: serving our clients' best interests.
