mariana 2016I have been working for over 25 years in Social Communication, journalism and consultancy as a senior specialist in the design and implementation of strategies with a gender perspective, particularly in the field of women’s rights and sexual and reproductive rights.

I have a broad experience with media and organizations managing communication products with gender equality as a central component: statements, press releases, developing communications strategies, developing Web pages and managing the social media, disseminating knowledge products, preparing flyers and spreading other materials in order to enhance awareness about human rights’ violations.

As Communications Associate in UN Women Mexico country office I planned and launched communication plans to build awareness and generate commitment regarding gender equality and ending violence against women and girls. In other working places as well I designed activities and communication strategies to protect, promote and strengthen the defense of women’s rights. As Communications Coordinator in NGO I participated in the design and implementation of advocacy plans to change laws and policies affecting women’s rights, specially sexual and reproductive rights.

I have also been publishing interviews and articles in Argentinean and Mexican media. Storytelling is one of my favourites. I live in Buenos Aires.
