CEFIM, the Center of Education for the Integral Formation of Women kicked off their 6th annual International Women’s Forum in Miami Beach with a lively cocktail party at the Hibiscus Island home of CEFIM’s Irazema Zapata.
Over 70 VIPs gathered poolside to welcome top business leaders and representatives of various consulates and chambers of commerce while enjoying a beautiful Miami Beach evening, delicious hors d’oeuvres and Mexican music.
The CEFIM forum’s theme, “Is Society Changing Women?” is aimed at women leaders who wield influence in all areas of our modern society. This role, they believe, is crucial in a rapidly changing world and necessary to empower women in order to humanize and harmonize society to achieve tolerance, solidarity and justice.
Among the guests, were Columba Bush; Elena Maribona, CEFIM director; Gabriel Abaroa, Jr., president of the Latin Grammys; Arturo Montemayor, Director of Deutsch Bank; Elba Hentschel, Director, U.S./Mexican Chamber of Commerce; Lucia Legorreta daughter of renowned Mexican architect Ricardo Legorreta; Monica Valdez Merphree, from the Mexican Consulate. According to Elena Maribona, “this is the first forum that takes place outside of Mexico; Miami was chosen because of its reputation as the capital of Latin America and its cosmopolitan image.”
