Mr. Angulo believes that learning by doing is the best way to practice and develop the skills needed for future leaders.
Through events and workshops on a global scale, JCI has set goals to address specific issues such as inequality and injustice, poverty, and climate change…by identifying responsibility as one of the critical elements that future leaders must have.
