Rome (Italy) Overcoming the Throw-away Culture
Several Latin American business schools took part in a meeting in Rome in October 2018 to reflect on Business, Growth, and Inclusion, in light of the Church’s social teaching. The meeting was organized by IPADE (Universidad Panamericana, Mexico) in collaboration with the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross, with the participation of business people from Latin America. For the organizers, the main objective was to make professionals aware of the need to better manage their companies so that they become more responsive to human needs. The initiative also sought to contribute to overcoming the “throw-away culture” denounced by Pope Francis, by promoting “the creation of institutions and public policies that foster inclusive economic growth.”
