Natalia Vasquez

Impact Design Program Manager

I design and scale experiences around interdisciplinary action for social and environmental change. I imagine and build programs on topics from climate change to social entrepreneurship, strategize for expansion to new audiences, facilitate design sprints for corporate and foundation partners, and convene leaders in technology and design to share their wisdom at the annual Net Impact conferece. I combine my knowledge of human centered design and my experience in business planning and strategy. 

Previously, I've worked on entrepreneurial projects focused on using technology and design for climate, population, and the empowerment of women and girls. This has included IDEO's partner studio in Peru, Dimagi's public health software, Kopernik's last-mile distribution, the Population Media Center's entertainment for change, the US Department of Energy's clean cities initiative. 

While trying to understand how the world ticks, I got a BA in International Relations and Entrepreneurship from Tufts University.

  • My most useless skill is: Opening a coconut with a machete.
  • The best advice I ever got was: Don't wait.
  • The part of my job that keeps me heading to work each day is: Knowing that I'm helping to generate better solutions to the global problems we can't ignore.
