Senior Program Coordinator
Claudia Gonzalez is a Senior Program Coordinator for the IWMF. She divides her time between the IWMF’s Latin America Reporting Initiative, Adelante, and the Elizabeth Neuffer Fellowship. When she’s not organizing or implementing reporting trips, Claudia moonlights as a yoga teacher and leads trauma-informed yoga classes for the IWMF community. She is a proud member of the IWMF #bikegang and a true millennial who loves to eat avocado toast.
Claudia joined the IWMF in 2017 as a program coordinator. She was drawn to the IWMF because of her commitment to gender equality. Claudia began her career at Advancing Girls’ Education in Africa (AGE Africa), an organization that supports young women’s access to secondary education in Malawi. As a program coordinator, she also supported the African Great Lakes Reporting Initiative.
Claudia completed her bachelor’s degree in International Studies, focused on International Development, and her bachelor’s degree in Spanish Language and Latin American Area Studies at American University. She holds a Certificate in Spanish Translation and speaks Spanish and German.
