Latin America

Alejandra is the leader of Institutional Development at Fundación Reimagina. An initiative that works to accelerate real systemic educational transformation in Latin America. Reimagina has developed a collaborative ecosystem “Aprendo en Casa” which is a network of over 80 organizations that support educational communities in the region with curated free digital content and resources for the development of XXI century skills in vulnerable students.  Specifically, Alejandra works in the strategic and practical development of Reimagina through different spheres (public, private and civil) with a focus on matching what different organizations offer to the actual demands in the local communities.

She then did a dual master’s degree in management and corporate communications from IE University in Spain. Since then, she has been working in the social impact field.
