Daniela ZamoraProgram Coordinator, MEXICO Mexico
Daniela joined IYF in October 2022, taking on the role of Program Coordinator for gender-focused programs related to IT development, socio-emotional skills, and labor market skills. Her strong interest in women's and girls' rights advocacy and security issues has been a consistent thread throughout her academic and professional career, where she has actively collaborated with non-profit organizations and international development agencies. Daniela has also specialized in the prevention of gender-based violence for women and girls in Mexico, as well as the integration of a gender perspective into Mexican public policies to promote gender equality. She initiated a grassroots project called Xochicalli: Flore(siendo) Unidas (Xochicalli: Flourishing Together). This initiative is dedicated to promoting peace and raising awareness about gender-based violence by creating individual and collective self-care spaces for young women in Iztapalapa, Mexico City.
With extensive international experience in designing and coordinating gender-focused projects, Daniela eagerly contributes her expertise to IYF's programs. She holds a B.A. in International Relations with a minor in Political Economy from Lewis & Clark College in Oregon, USA, and has completed a certification program in Gender and Public Policy from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM).
