iLEAP International Fellow, 2014
Mariana is the Director of Communications and a founding member of Colectiva Feminista para el Desarrollo Local (in English, the Feminist Collective for Local Development). Colectiva Feminista is a feminist organization that seeks to eradicate the subordination and discrimination of women. Mariana’s role as head of the communications department ranges from producing photojournalism pieces to managing “Radio de Todas,” a radio program that she founded, to advising, accompanying, and strengthening groups of women and young people.
Mariana views the iLEAP program as a unique opportunity to collaborate, exchange ideas with leaders from all over the world, and connect with other women.
