In 2020, was the 10 anniversaries of the first edition of the ITAM Social Commitment Seminar. After one decade, our institute is prude to have created this space for reflection and a meeting place for the actors of civil society organizations dedicated to human and social development.
The Social Commitment Seminar of ITAM has consolidated as a platform for the work in big topics, and the participation of distinguished personalities and organizations.
Some of the addressed topics are situations like: “Building leaderships”, “Certification of the ethical principles of a company”, “The Public-private alliances to overcome poverty, inequality, and violence”, “The multidimensionality of social rights”, between others.
On the other hand, some of the people and organizations that had distinguished us with their participations are Peggy Dulany (founder of Synergos), Alan Stoga, founder and president of Tällberg Foundation, The National Council of Evaluation of the Social Development Policies (CONEVAL), and Bal Foundation.
“Our social commitment seminar has sought in each of its editions to bring together prominent leaders from around the world, to share their knowledge with our community, with organizations, and people committed to social causes and, in this way, share those experiences to encourage participation, and creation of new leaders who organize philanthropic wills in these turbulent times”.
