The Board of Directors of the Institute of the Americas cordially invites you to the Institute’s 30th Anniversary Celebration at which we will be honoring His Excellency Felipe de Jesús Calderón Hinojosa, former President of Mexico, and Institute Founder Ambassador Theodore E. Gildred.
Felipe Calderón, immediate past President of Mexico, will receive the Institute of the Americas’ award for Leadership in the Americas. During his 2006-2012 term in office, President Calderón dealt with the world economic crisis and its impact on Mexico and confronted drug-related violence in Mexico. President Calderón is a Global Public Leaders Fellow at the Kennedy School at Harvard University and is heading the Global Commission on the Economy and Climate. As President, Calderón hosted the 2010 Cancun Summit on Climate Change and pushed through Mexico’s first climate change law. President Calderón will be accompanied by his wife former First Lady Margarita Zavala.
The Leadership in the Americas Award recognizes outstanding contributions to economic and social reforms in the Americas, and has been awarded previously to 12 heads of state.
