Path to WEV

Manlio César Correa is a multicultural and bilingual social business believer and promoter. He is a passionate advocate for global social leadership, with over 20 years’ experience as an entrepreneur, consultant, advisor, project manager, mentor, instructor, researcher, and published author. Manlio holds a BA In International Business, an MA In Latin American Studies from SDSU, and a PhD on Migration and Development, and is a continuing education enthusiast (he recently finished a UNITAR course on Entrepreneurship for Migrants and Refugees).

Manlio focuses on all aspects of small and family-owned businesses, through a social business lens. He uses a unique perspective to think “outside the box” with creative and innovative approaches. He enjoys contributing on issues such as poverty alleviation, economic justice and development, and neighborhood enhancement/empowerment. These interests and his past experiences with business, social justice and helping our communities reach and develop their potential led Manlio to work with WEV first as a guest speaker, then as a business consultant and Emprendimiento instructor.

“Working with WEV allows me to share my passions about social justice and entrepreneurship to help others reach the true American dream.”
