Twenty-Five Years of Incontro Romano
On March 31, the international forum Incontro Romano celebrated its 25th anniversary with a conference entitled “The Power of Service: Empathy and Teamwork.” The event was attended by over 300 young women from 50 different countries, interested in promoting a culture of service through domestic work and other professions centered on caring for people.
The keynote address was given by Reyes Rite, president of the International Institute for Resilience and Emotional Development (IRYDE) and specialist in manager development.
Incontro Romano began in 1990, under the encouragement of Blessed Álvaro del Portillo. The forum seeks to highlight the dignity of the service professions and their close tie to social progress, along with the special contribution of women in this area.
