This is the vision driving INCAE to enhance women inclusion in the labor world, senior management, and decision-making we face today as a society, a vision shared by Cargill, a company with over 50 years of experience nurturing and developing communities in the region.

It has been proven that companies with more women on their boards get a ROE 35% higher as well as a total shareholder profit which is 34% higher (Catalyst). This leads to a need to enhance the competitiveness of companies in the region in order to accelerate and contribute to Latin America's inclusive economic development. This is achieved through better opportunities given to women and by promoting collaborative leadership resulting in value in organizations and societies through research, education and impact.

Fox is also a Charles Haimoff Endowment Trustee and the lead donor of INCAE's new Latin American Center for Entrepreneurs.

The new center was presented at a dinner offered as part of an event held on November 11 and 12 by the Latin American Forum for Entrepreneurs combining logic and creativity, the artistic and analytical spirit of entrepreneurs.

thumb Donativo Parque InfantilStudents in the 2016 class of INCAE's MBA Program set a clear goal from day one: they wanted to do their part in lending a hand to INCAE and to do so in a distinctive way. So, they unanimously chose to engage in a project which is key to the INCAE experience, namely, restoring the children's playing area in the married couples section of Campus Walter Kissling Gam, a space coveted and loved by the children of many INCAE graduates.

"Students' wives used to meet there every day at 4:00 pm. In a sense, children and wives were part of the class. It was the place to socialize," said MBA 2016 Oswaldo Silva. He added that his was a very cohesive class, with strong relations between students' families.
