Deputy Executive Director
As the IWMF’s Deputy Executive Director, Nadine Hoffman is responsible for developing the organization’s programmatic priorities and initiatives. Working closely alongside Executive Director Elisa Lees Muñoz to guide and execute organizational strategy, Nadine approaches her work with a dedication to gender equity, press freedom and supporting the IWMF’s global community of journalists.
Since joining the IWMF in 2010, Nadine has spearheaded the organization’s expanding safety and security work, overseeing the creation of physical and digital safety training opportunities as well as growing emergency assistance efforts. As an expert in journalism safety, Nadine understands the unique challenges gender diverse journalists experience – and the resources needed to meet these challenges head-on.
Upholding the “mission first” motto, Nadine also plays a key role in funder and partner cultivation, bringing together key stakeholders across the media, gender, tech and philanthropic spaces to protect, support and elevate women and nonbinary journalists worldwide.

She began her career as a reporter in Boston before transitioning to non-profit work. Outside (and inside!) work, she is passionate about disrupting the status quo, traveling to far-flung places, and working her way through DC’s best restaurants.
