This week, we are extremely excited to be welcoming our new Program Coordinator, Isabela Carvalho, to the WINGS team!
Isabela has several years of experience in the development sector including five years as Network and Project Manager for Ashoka Changemakers’ global initiatives, and, most recently, management of communications and integration for the United Nations in Angola, where she built partnerships, improved inter-Agency cooperation, and supported relief missions.
In her career, Isabela has also supported a German social enterprise promoting youth employment, coordinated a Dutch international cooperation program that united Brazilian and Dutch youth to promote youth empowerment in low-income communities, wrote about accessible tourism for a Portuguese digital magazine, and crafted strategic communications plans for a number of institutions in Brazil. Through her experiences, Isabela has developed strong multi-sector program management and stakeholder engagement skills, as well as a keen passion for social innovation.
Isabela holds a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism from the Universidade Federal Fluminense, in Brazil, and a Master’s degree in Communications for Social Impact from the Universidad de Valladolid, in Spain.
