WHAT DO WE DO


From left to right: Pat Mitchell, renowned United States media executive; Nina Weissberg, vice president of The Weissberg Foundation; Catalina Escobar, founder and president of the Juanfe Foundation; Mónica Fonseca, TV presenter and Ambassador Juanfe.

We are committed to actively defending the fundamental human rights of the most vulnerable populations, especially boys, girls and women, and claiming the role of women in different areas of society.

In this sense, one of the main activities that we carry out annually is the Women Working for the World Conference, which arose given our commitment to advancing gender equity and responds to the need to expand our promotion and protection of women’s rights work.

Today, it is the biggest and most important platform for discussion and reflection on gender issues and sustainable social development in Colombia. Our objectives are mainly to contribute and generate knowledge; raise awareness about gender issues; position the issues on the national public agenda; identify best practices, encourage the exchange of experiences and propose solutions; and involve civil society.

Catalina, for her part, is widely recognized as a social entrepreneurship leader and is an example for young people. She is part of the Women Leaders in Global Health Fellow 2017 at Stanford University, as well as Ashoka and Schwab Foundation Fellow; belongs to the Global Women’s March Board since early 2018; and has been invited as a speaker to multiple conferences around the world, including Georgetown University, Standard Chartered Bank, TEDWomen, Citibank, Aspen Institute, Fortune Most Powerful Women, UN Women, Nobel Peace Prize Summit and Babson College.
