Welcome to
The Mexico Conference

The MX Conference 2021 is the fourth edition of the student conference organized by the Harvard University Mexican Association of Students (HUMAS).

The objective of the conference is to expose our conference attendees, most of whom are Mexican students at Harvard and other major universities, to the leading and often missing voices about the interdisciplinary issues and opportunities that Mexico faces in the 21st century. This year the conference will be held online.

The conference will draw prominent experts from Mexico and beyond that specialize in fields that range from financial inclusion, political participation of women, energy, public health, gender violence and inequality, and culture.
Conference open to the public.
