Catalina Schriber was Advocacy Program Officer of Mission 21 from 2018 to the end of 2019. Her background as social and cultural anthropologist allows her to work with diverse perspectives and get an approach to different realities all over the world. In the academic field, she has worked with women in Colombia who have been strongly affected by the armed conflict and who are claiming their legal rights for justice, truth and reconciliation to the Colombian government. 
Before starting at Mission 21, Catalina was the deputy for the Women’s Representative/Gender Equality Officer at the Institute for Latin American Studies at Freie Universität Berlin, Germany. There she was responsible for all hiring and appointment processes and counselling for gender-based discrimination and sexual harassment.  
For her work at Mission 21, she is enthusiastic by the high level of engagement, solidarity and expertise of the growing worldwide Women’s Network of Mission 21 and its partners. Catalina is looking forward to working more closely with the partner organizations within the International Women’s Conference, the annual Advocacy Training in Basel and Geneva, diverse projects such as the international campaigns and the Women’s Letter.
