Sustaining the Work - What's Your Plan?

Hello! I am Anca, founder and director of La Sobremesa. I have been working with and accompanying civil society organizations and networks in Latin America and the global south for over a decade, as a designer and facilitator of change processes.

In my experience, I saw - and I see - a lack of spaces for reflection and learning, and for thinking and rethinking realistic solutions from civil society. I support organizations to design their strategies and to rethink and strengthen their institutions, structures and teams. I really enjoy supporting people who focus on improving the realities of their countries.

Before La Sobremesa, I was the Matchbox coordinator for The Engine Room in Latin America and then at a Global level, where I accompanied dozens of organizations to be more strategic with the use of technology and data. Prior to that, I worked for Ciudadanía Inteligente in Chile, where I co-founded and led the Developing Latin America project, one of the first networks around open data in the region, to seek solutions to social problems. I co-founded the AbreLatAm regional de-conference, a space to discuss and innovate in the opening of data and governments. I have a master’s degree in Development Practice from SIPA at Columbia University.

I was born in Romania, I grew up in the United States, and within the last ten years I have worked from Chile and now Mexico for all of Latin America.
