Osser&Osser received in May of this year another major recognition from the AESC in the form of an award: The AESC IDEA Award 2022. As per the definition of this award by the AESC, “The AESC IDEA Award builds from the AESC Diversity Pledge by recognizing initiatives that demonstrate an exemplary commitment to Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access (or “IDEA”). These initiatives should be of sufficient significance and external impact to be recognized as excellent by the profession”.
IMD President José Ruiz, CEO of Alder Koten with offices in the USA and Mexico, nominated Anna Luiza Osser for this award, an initiative strongly supported by Anna Luiza’s colleagues and competitors as well in Brazil.

“IDEA” has been in the DNA of Osser&Osser from the beginning and Anna Luiza has been a pioneer in this cause, active in her daily job as a recruiter as in her engagement in the 30% Club, for instance, to increase women representation in the C-Suite and Boards.
