Here are a few of the projects I've been involved in over my decade working on sustainability in Latin America.
IDENTIFYING KEY PERFORMANCE INDICATORS FOR MEASURING CREATING SHARED VALUE AT Nestlé
I researched key performance indicators for assessing the social and environmental impact of Nestlé's Creating Shared Value projects in agricultural raw materials sourcing communities. In Ecuador I spent time on cocoa farms, in Colombia, coffee farms, and in Mexico, cattle ranches producing milk. I also conducted the RDF social baseline assessment for coffee in Colombia.
Nestlé'S RURAL DEVELOPMENT FRAMEWORK
I worked as part of a team of international NGO stakeholders on the development of Nestlé's Rural Development Framework in Vevey for baselining social impact in agricultural raw materials sourcing communities from 2011 to 2014.
COFOUNDING THE LATIN AMERICA NEWS DISPATCH
I co-founded the Latin America News Dispatch with three colleagues at New York University to help fill the gap of Latino and Latin American voices in the United States media.
