Ingrid Arinez has over a decade of experience in the non-profit sector. While studying for her law degree at Catholic University in Bolivia, Ingrid worked in the Center for Rights and Capacity Building (CDC), where she visited inmates in Bolivian prisons and advised them about their rights, which resulted in the creation of a permanent aid program to advise inmates about their litigation. Later, she joined the Bolivian Institute of Agricultural Reform as a consultant for the International Bank of Reconstruction and Development (World Bank), where she worked on educating dwellers in agricultural return issues. This effort prepared indigenous people and rural dwellers to better understand their land rights and be able to resolve land return issues. While in attending the University of Arkansas to pursue a Masters in Law and Public Policy Ph.D., Ingrid worked as a summer camp project director for Familia Corazon in Tijuana Mexico where she developed an educational/recreational long-term plan for children between the ages of eight to fifteen. The plan resulted in a new business collaboration between nonprofits and the private sector. After concluding her Ph.D. studies, Ingrid joined Heifer International, where she currently works as a Bilingual International Program Manager, guiding international offices through the project cycle by delivering technical assistance in project monitoring, reporting validation, and strategic planning, as well as leading multinational program and project initiatives, impacting a variety of sectors from gender equality, social justice, food security and business sustainability.
