Latin America: Empowering Women as Digital Leaders

ICFJ Knight Fellow Mariana Santos created Chicas Poderosas, a network that empowers women as digital leaders in newsrooms, forming chapters across many countries in Latin America. Santos introduced animation and other ways to use data in compelling ways in Brazil, Chile, and Costa Rica. She also helped to develop guides on data visualization for the project led by ICFJ Knight Fellow Miguel Paz in Chile, which produced the first online data journalism manual for Latin America.
