Dr. Beatriz Merino, Peru's People's Defender

As the first National Ombudswoman of Perú, Dr. Beatriz Merino has become an independent watchdog as her country's Defensora del Pueblo, or People's Defender. Since 2005, she has protected the rights of Perú's citizens—dedicating her work to those "who do not have a voice."

In 2003, Dr. Merino was the first woman elected as prime minister of a Latin American country. Today she is recognized as a leader in women's issues, as well as an expert in Latin American politics.

Dr. Merino will appear in conversation with KRON 4 news anchor Ysabel Duron in San Francisco as part of the popular I.M.O.W. Extraordinary Voices, Extraordinary Change Speaker Series program.

She will have much to reveal about women and leadership, as well as the global economy, as she was also a senior specialist at the World Bank. Purchase your ticket now.
