Iliana Hagenah


Iliana is a freelance journalist, focusing on policy and its hidden impact. She recently investigated with The GroundTruth Project the human consequences of TN's court debt reliance, as the debt spirals without a centralized way to interpret or store the data. She also wrote for VICE with The International Women's in Media Foundation about Kenya’s COVID lockdown policies worsening gender-based-violence issues -leaving some GBV workers to protect survivors in their own homes. She was the Associate Producer for the award-winning documentary, Mama Gloria, which premiered at the 2020 Chicago International Film Festival. Iliana previously worked at CBS as a producer and Assignment Editor for the Foreign Desk. At BBC, she produced several experimental shorts for the English, Arabic, and Persian services.
