CHICAS PODEROSAS are changing the face of MEDIA, one woman at a time.

HOW IT ALL BEGAN

Mariana Santos started Chicas Poderosas in 2013 while she was an ICFJ Knight Fellow. Her goal was to share her accomplishments as an innovator in digital media with other Latin American women, to help others succeed as new media leaders. Her vision has been responsible for inspiring thousands of women in Latin America and throughout the world.

COMMUNITIES

Chicas Poderosas has evolved since Mariana first introduced Chicas to Latin America. We now have Chicas communities in thirteen countries. Chicas Poderosas continues to provide digital and new media skills and leadership training to Chicas’ ambassadors, to facilitate professional mentorships, and to provide fellowships to Chicas so they can learning from innovative news and media organizations.

WORKSHOPS

Chicas has a long history of providing training to women in underserved regions of the world. New in 2017, we are introducing investigative journalism workshops & hackathons. These events will provide women with the skills and knowledge to research and report on issues that serve the public interest, to hold the powerful accountable, and to seek truth with accuracy.

NEW VENTURES LAB

A new focus of our organization is the New Ventures Lab. The Chicas Poderosas New Ventures Lab will provide strategic guidance and funding for women-led entrepreneurial, independent news or media ventures, with the aim to create an informed, connected and empowered society.
