Sigamos Aprendiendo, or Let’s Keep Learning, is an initiative launched by Mercado Global in recognition of the lack of professional development opportunities available to our majority Indigenous women lead staff.

The program brings in professionals from diverse backgrounds to provide our staff with continued learning opportunities on a monthly basis - allowing our staff the chance to grow both professionally and personally.
