From the Women in Parliaments (WIP) Latin America Reunion in 2014 in Brazil, to the 2015 WPL Summit in Mexico and the 2016 WPL APEC Women Leaders meeting in Lima, Peru, WPL’s commitment in Latin America seeks to raise awareness about the importance of women empowerment in the region, and to continue efforts towards building determined communities of women political leaders across South America and the Caribbean.

Concordia is a non-partisan, member-based organization dedicated to actively fostering, elevating, and sustaining cross-sector partnerships for social impact. The 2019 Concordia Americas Summit is Concordia’s flagship regional convening in Latin America and is a continuation of the Concordia Americas Initiative, which was launched in Miami, Florida in 2016.
