Season 4 Episode 09 – Leticia Caminero, Consultant Research and Special Projects at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).
This season is the Caribbean season at The Rodolfo Rivas Project! Like a couple of my previous guests this season, my guest hails from the Caribbean, specifically the Dominican Republic. She is Leticia Caminero, a fellow professional in the International Intellectual Property scene. We have been trying to arrange it for a while and finally got around to it, and I could not be happier.
Leticia is a lawyer and holds an LLM from the University of Cambridge. She was also part of the first cohort of the Young Professional Programme at the World Trade Organization. As she tells it, the Programme was integral in her career, and she talks a bit about the selection process and the whole experience.
Early in her career, with her entrepreneurial spirit, she started a thriving law practice and talked about the successes and challenges of following this path.
After her stint at the WTO, she joined the Inter-American Development Bank in Washington D.C., which eventually led her back to Geneva, where her heart is, but let her tell you more about that.
Currently, at WIPO, she is doing a lot of capacity building, something she is truly passionate about.
By the way, she also has her podcast! Intangiblia ™. You can listen to that after this episode!
