Empowering Regional Leadership: FIA University Region IV Programme held in Panama


In October, FIA Mobility Members from South and Central America  gathered in Panama City for their annual in-person FIA University Region IV Programme. 

The event was designed to support knowledge-sharing and learning across the region, as part of the FIA’s wider commitment to be a knowledge-led federation.

FIA Region IV President Ricardo Morales Rubio opened the event. He said: “Initiatives like the FIA University Region IV Programme are key to our success. These kinds of programmes help us to come together as a Federation, and learn more about what works, leadership best practices, and what it will take to build a stronger future.” 

Developed in partnership with ESADE Business School and aimed at FIA Region IV Club Executives, the programme was delivered in Spanish and focused on learning to lead during moments of uncertainty or transformation. The sessions aimed to give leaders the tools to make efficient decisions and leverage innovation to remain relevant for their members. 

Over the course of the programme, Member Clubs also had the opportunity to network with their peers, and engage in discussions around digital transformation, business and services, talent and culture, and building connections across the region.
