Bolsa Institucional de Valores (BIVA) Market Open

November 8, 2018

“It’s important that women are seen as part of business traditions such as the ringing of the opening bell at the stock exchange,” states CWDI Chair Natividad. “Mexican women, whether they are CEOs, board directors, executives, or entrepreneurs of businesses large or small, have had vital roles in growing the Mexican economy. We are also proud of Maria Ariza for taking the helm of this new, modern exchange.”
