After four years of exponential growth and success in the United States, AS/COA’s Young Professionals of the Americas (YPA) network is expanding to the region and traveling for the first time to Mexico City. Following the recent natural disasters in Latin America and the Caribbean, with a focus on Mexico’s earthquakes, this event will convene tech companies, civil society, and government leaders to discuss preparedness, crisis response, and post-disaster policy considerations. This multi-stakeholder panel will provide a unique platform to discuss the implications of recent natural disasters and strategies to increase resilience and response capacity in future crises. The launch event, in partnership with Google Mexico and COMEXI Young Professionals, will bring together young professionals and will be followed by a networking reception.
