Angelica Fuentes Leads Panel Discussion at Equities Women's Council Roundtable

Dynamic discussion between entrepreneurial female leaders making an impact in the lives of many women globally

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 10/19/16 -- Angelica Fuentes Foundation (FAF), a private institution committed to the overall empowerment of women of all ages through the strengthening and financing of organizations that support women's advancement, today announced its Founder Angelica Fuentes led a social impact panel discussion at the Equities Women's Council Roundtable on Tuesday, October 18. At the event women discussed issues ranging from gendered equality initiatives to women empowerment ideas.

The Equities Women's Council is a community for entrepreneurial women in the emerging growth, start up, venture capital and corporate professional roles across industry sectors. The goal of the Council is to celebrate women and exchange ideas with other successful female leaders focused on innovation and disruption.

The main topics addressed included the progress of women participation and inclusion in the labor force around the globe, salary inequality based on gender and also the benefits for the economy and society in general of an equal participation of men and women in the private and public sector, as measured by a resulting total increase in global GDP of up to 18% according to a McKenzie research on the opportunities of worldwide gender equality.

Angelica Fuentes, Founder of the Angelica Fuentes Foundation commented, "It was an honor to attend the event and I hope my contribution was helpful and insightful to the Equities Women's Council, and their gender equality agendas. Spaces where we can put the spotlight on both the aspects in which there has been little progress in advancing a gender equality agenda, such as the poor results over the last decade in closing the salary gap or increasing women's participation in politics, along with detailing and explaining the benefits for society in general of a more even world for all, are fundamental in setting an agenda for achieving higher process and benchmarking that which has been made. I look forward to participating in future events to increase our common efforts and contribute to further this fundamental agenda."

About Angelica Fuentes Foundation
Angelica Fuentes Foundation believes that women empowerment and gender equality are some of the most efficient tools for social, economic and environmental development. They envision a world in which women and men cooperate and work together in a context of equanimity and equality of opportunities, where women are able to fully participate in all the areas of human endeavor, for their personal wellbeing as well as that of the communities they live in.

Angelica Fuentes Foundation's goal is to promote and encourage gender equality and women empowerment in Latin America as one of the most efficient tools for economic, social and environmental development in the region. To achieve this goal, they work with a model that seeks to accurately measure the impact they can have in communities and countries where they have a direct or indirect presence, through their programs, their network of organizations or those for which they provide financial support and consulting.

The measurement carried out by the Foundation seeks to define comparative criteria to evaluate the economic participation of men and women, access to education and professional development, as well as pay equity by gender. Likewise, these measurements also allow monitoring the direct impact these rights have on other externalities such as teenage pregnancy, gender violence and access to justice, as well as the well-being and progress of the community in general.

When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...

Today traditional IT approaches leverage well-architected compute/networking domains to control what applications can access what data, and how.
