We’re delighted to welcome Andrea Tapia to Global Marketing Exchange. Andrea launches our new program in Washington, D.C. as our first participant from Ecuador, at the International Civil Society Action Network (ICAN). The GME team is incredibly grateful to France Bognon and her colleagues at ICAN for supporting our program and for their immediate inclusion, generosity and wonderfully warm welcome for Andrea as she joins their talented and passionate group. ICAN drives change through the promotion of women rights and peace building initiatives in countries deeply affected by conflict, transition and closed political systems. It's vital work and we're very proud to be their partner.
