What the Delegates are Saying...

"One of the most inspiring lessons I learned at the summit was that nothing is impossible.  I was greatly encouraged by listening to many women who had reached their business goals and objectives and it make me realize I could to the same."

-Vanesa Eirin, Sinectis.com, Argentina

"The event was distinguished not only by the interesting programs and networking opportunities, but also by the high quality of the presenters and speakers.  In addition, the generous attendance and variety of country participants was of great importance to the success of the event."

-Aurora Elena Lopez de Gonzalez, Attorney, National Financiera, Mexico

Because of what I have witnessed and experienced in my career as a woman in a male dominated field (engineering), I will continue to fight for women to have the opportunity to occupy decision making roles.  In addition, the summit showed me how important it is to support women in atypical fields."

-Graciela Gerola, Manager, CEAMSE, Argentina


"My participation in the summit of Buenos Aires has permitted me to identify various areas of opportunity which until now have only been seen in a general context, though they are of great importance for women in Colombia.  In the future I expect to be able to direct entrepreneurial efforts by women in my country."

-Angela Maria Camacho, Director, Firstcom, Colombia
