The day’s proceedings will kick off with a panel looking at changes in Latin America’s political landscape, which has seen more pro-employee leaders take power across the region. Panellists will explore how the political shifts have affected labour and employment legislation and the knock-on effects to employers.

In a subsequent discussion, speakers will explore recent restrictions on outsourcing and the increasing focus on the social aspect of ESG. With these changes comes increased scrutiny on how companies deal with supply chain issues and the treatment of workers.

Topics surrounding diversity and discrimination will be up for debate in the next panel, which will look at what companies can do to increase gender and other forms of diversity within their ranks.

Following a networking lunch, delegates are invited to join a discussion on Latin America’s booming energy sector and increased demand for talent in the industry.

The day's final panel will examine talent retention, looking at how employee needs have changed – for example, increased flexibility to accommodate working remotely – and how companies can navigate these demands.

The following day, Latin Lawyer’s sister platform LACCA will host its regional meeting at the same venue. For more information on that event, click here.
