Central America’s 100 Powerful Women

ComSoc’s Latin America Board Director, Yessica Saéz Barrios, one the the hundred more powerful women of Central America, by Forbes.

With great sense of pride, we’ve got to read the Forbes Central America magazine, May-June 2024 issue, in which can be found our Board Director, Yessica.

The hard work and effort that she shows during her trajectory has given her this kind of recognition.

We are sure that her work is going to continue and she will motivate all of her surroundings on the path of the voluntarism, engineering, researching and more.
