Diana is a passionate advocate for education and evidence-based programs, and has over 10 years’ experience managing projects, conducting analytical work, and participating in policy dialogue. She works collaboratively with governments and development partners to design and implement effective programs and policies.
Diana is currently supporting a five-organization partnership to plan and implement an initiative helping U.S. local governments deliver resident-centered programs that promote economic mobility.
She also collaborated with a nonprofit to provide training and technical assistance for city financial leaders from 28 U.S. cities. Through this work, cities learned and applied new strategies for confronting budget crises, and strengthened their commitment to equity in the wake of COVID-19.
Prior to joining Delivery Associates, Diana worked at the Inter-American Development Bank, where, in collaboration with local authorities, she designed, implemented, and evaluated programs to improve education access and quality in Chile, Colombia, Guatemala, and Peru. She also conducted research on teacher policies and socio-emotional learning in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Additionally, Diana worked for over three years in the Peruvian public sector, where she planned the implementation of a new meritocratic teacher law. The law included new evaluations and benefits for over 300,000 teachers. She also coordinated with different organizations to estimate the infrastructure gap in basic education, which was used as a roadmap for future education infrastructure projects.
