Katia Dumont is a Regional Network Organizer for Southwestern Europe for the BMW Foundation Herbert Quandt. Prior to joining the Foundation, she was a consultant for foundations and social enterprises in venture philanthropy. She spent various years setting up and building the regional chapter for the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs – ANDE of Development Entrepreneurs based out of Mexico City, where she enabled research, facilitated collaboration between a community of stakeholders for the small and growing business sector, and provided a base for knowledge management and practical applications.
Katia also is part of the Board of Directors of Value For Women Ltd., a social enterprise on a mission to promote women’s economic participation, leadership, and entrepreneurship by bringing a gender lens to business practices. Her interest in (eco)systems sparked her passion to create a regenerative future by engaging in agriculture and the broader human/nature system that supports it.
We are happy to have Katia with us speaking to her background and current work in community development. She speaks to her intent of contributing to the creation of safer and braver community spaces where relationships are anchored in trust instead of transactions. We also explore together several topics such as: how to balance engaging in community action with the observer role?
How to create space for flourishing futures for all?
As speaker at the Why the world needs Anthropologists conference, she shares how she will be contributing to the theme as well as her advice and thoughts to those considering to attend.
