I'm part of a relatively new not-for-profit called Somos21 which is working to promote greater connectivity and collaboration between young professionals across Australia and Latin America.
Our focus is on bringing people together to build networks, share knowledge and experiences, and identify business and professional development opportunities.
We're hosting our next event in Sydney this Thursday night from 6-9pm and would like to extend the invite to anyone in the Internations community with a background or interest in Latin America to attend.
