Zora’s ability to navigate varied cultural landscapes and her insight into global dynamics are instrumental in fostering strong member relations and maintaining robust connections within LAVCA’s extensive global and regional networks.

Before joining LAVCA, Zora led critical programming at Vital Voices which focused on human rights and empowerment initiatives.
