Latin America & Caribbean
The Latin America and the Caribbean region has members in Argentina, Barbados, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, México, Peru, Trinidad & Tobago, and Venezuela.
In addition to the IAF Jamaica, Mexico and Bolivia chapters, efforts are underway to create chapters in the Dominican Republic and Colombia in 2018.
Focus in 2018
At present, the Association is focused on creating greater awareness of the IAF in the region, strengthening its outeach, offering more of its services in Spanish, and promoting membership growth. To this end, the Association is also currently working to develop the IAF CertifiedTM Professional Facilitator assessment in Spanish.
If you are interested in helping to strenghten the IAF in the region, please contact Gillian Chambers, Regional Director for Latin America and the Caribbean.
Building awareness of facilitation
Facilitation is creating a space within which people can empower themselves. (IAF Member Dale Hunter)
Part of the IAF's work in Latin America and the Caribbean, and elsewhere in the world, is to build greater awareness and understanding of professional facilitation and its benefits. Here is a short video (courtesy of the Instituto Internacional de Facilitación y Cambio) that helps to answer the question ¿Qué es lo que hacen los Facilitadores? or "What is it that facilitators do?.
The facilitator’s neutrality is her strength. It enables her to challenge, guide and empower groups in their collaborative thinking. (IAF Member Ulla Wyckoff Tomlinson, CPF)
