Álvaro de Regil Castilla is Project initiator and Executive Director of The Jus Semper Global Alliance since 2003, a coalition that supports living wages worldwide as a core element of sustainability, democracy, and business accountability. Álvaro is developer of The Living Wages North and South Initiative (TLWNSI) since 1999 and coordinator since 2001. His work is centred on developing the living wage concept, anchored on “equal pay for equal work of equal value", and, at a broader level, advancing a “people and planet” paradigm. As part of this transformative concept, he is also increasingly active in the areas of labour rights, business and human rights, no-growth / degrowth / steady-state economics, basic income and consumer rights.

Álvaro is
also a founding member and facilitator of the International Living Wage Observatory at La Salle University, (Mexico City campus), a contributor to the tranformative vision and praxis of the Global Tranition Initiative of the Tellus Institute in Boston, Massachusets and consultant on the underlying causes of immigration with various community organisations in California.

Previously, Álvaro spent more than 20 years working for various multinationals (Ford Motor Company, IBM, Univision), then managing his own direct response marketing company. He holds an MBA in marketing from the George Washington University and a BS in Business Administrations from La Salle University.
