Carolina Meneses

Executive Assistant

she/her | Based in Colombia | Joined in 2021

As Executive Assistant, Carolina works alongside the senior leadership and coordinates special projects and research, leads and organizes virtual events, and provides high-level executive support. She also advises the wider team in terms of IT/Tech support, translations, and other topics. She is passionate about people, learning, languages, music, and enjoys helping set up her team for success. It is precisely her passion for people that led her to work for refugees and contribute to bringing to life the reality of access and enjoyment of their human rights.

As a lifelong learner, Carolina enjoys learning about different topics, and firmly believes that technology can transform and improve people’s lives. With that, she has assumed the challenge of learning computer programming to translate her ideas into actionable, useful tools that can help people. She also believes in the power of communication and pursued graduate studies, with distinction, in Organizational Communication at the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, motivated by a wish to learn how to better build bridges among people. Before joining the team, she worked at different Diplomatic Missions, where she learned the importance of narratives, outreach to the community, and the impact of bilateral exchange programs.

In her free time, she enjoys traveling, playing the drums/guitar, and discovering new places to enjoy a good cup of coffee.
