IPED Spring 2021 Lecture Series: The importance of promoting Latin-American culture with Dutidú

March 11 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

How can Latin-American parents promote their cultural roots to their children? Why is there a need for them to do so? What is it even like for Latin-American kids growing up in Anglo-American culture? Please join the IPED community to welcome two passionate Latin American entrepreneurs, Maria Claire Vasquez and Maria Victoria Abreu, as they share their vision, Dutidú. Dutidú helps fill a growing demand in the market for Latin American culture. It has a growing collection of games, textiles, and décor that celebrates Dominican and Latin American culture.

She has had previous stints with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the World Bank, and the Brookings Institution.
