Mariana Chávez Sánchez

Originally from Mexico, Mariana first joined Women Win in 2018. Her role includes leading our efforts in supporting feminist organising and movements that leverage sports to advance gender justice.

Mariana holds a BA in Visual Communication and a MA in Gender Studies from the University of Utrecht. As a graphic designer, her work has included working in one of Mexico’s largest regional children’s hospitals to support children sick with cancer through physiotherapy guides. In 2016 she co-founded Cactus Power, a company employing women from rural communities.

With these experiences, Mariana understands the power of movement for resilience-building and the importance of women’s economic independence.
