Latin America is a region with amazing economic potential. I haven’t spent a ton of time there, but I’ve spent enough to know that the business climate is very different from the U.S., and can vary significantly from country to country. Still, the economies of Latin American countries are very closely tied to each other, and that makes it extremely important that there is cooperation and communication amongst the business community. The Group of Fifty is a Washington, DC based non-profit that is made up of select “business leaders who head some of the most significant and forward-looking enterprises in Latin America.” The organization provides “a forum for the leaders of the region’s most important companies to address changes as they appear in different sectors and markets, to hear from their peers in other countries about alternative business strategies, and to compare experiences and exchange ideas about the future of the hemisphere, its economies and its politics.”
The Group of Fifty has no “partisan, ideological, religious or commercial affiliations,” which means that the organization truly exists to provide an open platform for dialogue and exchange. The Group of Fifty has major annual meetings where they offer access to an amazing lineup of speakers. In addition to the meetings of the Group of Fifty members, the organization has also put together a new group called Millennium Leaders that brings together “outstanding Latin American professionals between the ages of 26 and 40.” If you’re interested in Latin American politics and business, working at the Group of Fifty would be a great way to start. Right now their Jobs page doesn’t show any full-time positions, but they have a Program Assistant job that was just posted on Idealist. It’s perfect for a new grad.
