PODER - abc* Business Awards 2009
Miami, USA

The 2009 PODER abc* Business Awards honored men and women in the Americas region that are producing systemic change in their own communities.

The PODER Awards were created in 2002 by Poder magazine to celebrate excellence in leadership in the Americas by recognizing those men and women who have demonstrated remarkable strategy, vision and execution in their respective businesses and organizations – those who are changing or can change the region’s development dynamics in several fronts.

Since 2009, the abc* Foundation has partnered with Poder to identify and award best practices in the Americas focused on social entrepreneurship, sustainability, peace and innovation.
