This initiative, launched in March 2018, recognizes that the key priorities of the business sector are aligned with the Centre’s priorities – a more just, sustainable, and equitable planet where every individual has the opportunity to flourish in our global economy. While we know that this is still an ideal, the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals provide a common guiding framework.
Why should companies engage with the Lead the Change! Initiative?
– As an opportunity to network with other industry leaders and learn about some of the key challenges (and opportunities) facing all of us.
– To be advocates for innovation and positive impact, most relevant topics for attracting and retaining top talent.
– To experience interactive workshops on cutting-edge topics and learn about how the UPEACE Centre for Executive Education can support companies in their talent development needs.
Costa Rica’s Investment Promotion Agency (CINDE), an organization that is promoting the commitment of a “Costa Rica is ready for the challenge of taking high tech industries and showing how a tradition of peace, education and innovation are the perfect formula to make business.”
