Mayca Balaguer is a lawyer with a solid academic background, standing out as having a Diploma in Gender Studies, women’s movement and politics in Latin America, as well as a Master’s Degree in Procedural Law. Her commitment and dedication made her a great companion and reference on issues related to access to sexual and (non) reproductive rights in the province of Córdoba.

Since her start at Fundeps in 2015 and over the years, she has coordinated both the area of ​​Gender and Sexual Diversity and Legal Affairs, contributing to the development and strengthening of each one.

We are convinced that Mayca will continue to contribute all its experience in coordinating the activities of the foundation and a team of people who work towards a more just, equitable, sustainable and democratic society.

In turn, with deep gratitude, we say goodbye to Carolina Tamagnini, who has accompanied us since 2014 at Fundeps with different leadership roles. Their commitment, work capacity and strategic vision allowed us not only to strengthen Fundeps internally, but also to enhance our research actions, political advocacy, training and networking. As a professional, we know that in his next projects he will continue to inspire with his dedication and leave his mark on every challenge he faces.

Every change marks the beginning of new opportunities. Starting a year full of new challenges and projects in a challenging context, we wish you both the best. May this new chapter be a journey of learning, collective work and success, and may each effort contribute to the defense of human rights.

Thank you Caro and congratulations May for this new rol.
