Dariela Sosa

Forum Moderator, Spanish

I am passionate about enabling powerful, inspiring digital and face-to-face conversations that stimulate ideas, engage the community and produce change. At ICFJ, I have co-created a community of more than 3,000 journalists from Latin American and Spain to improve coverage of pandemic-related issues in Spanish, fostering strategic and timely collaborations and partnerships. I propose and coordinate panels, host community circles, monitor and evaluate impacts, and offer (solicited) advice on coverage angles and potential alliances.

My background: I also work fighting misinformation and disinformation within the U.S. Hispanic audience as Impact & Engagement Editor of elDetector, the fact-checking unit of Univision Noticias.

I founded Arepita, a Venezuelan communication for development & media startup that improves news consumption experiences with creative newsletters and podcasts. I am a Venezuelan migrant living in Argentina, with a master’s in public administration from Columbia University in New York and a degree in journalism from UCAB in Caracas.
