“Being part of a project of transformation and social change in such complex contexts, which forces us to redouble our efforts to guarantee the rights and well-being of boys and girls, is a great challenge, but also a very exciting project to which I can contribute and from which I can learn.”

With a degree in Geography and History from the University of Granada, Pilar’s career stands out for her solid continuous training: Master’s Degree in NGO Management and Direction, Executive MP Women for Senior Management, and Executive Management Program, all of them studied at ESADE Business School.

Pilar has more than twenty years of experience in the third sector. Her professional career has been consolidated and developed in the international organization Oxfam Intermón in which she has assumed different responsibilities, mainly in Spain, but also in the Central American region.

Together with the Oxfam Intermón team, she has led projects for social transformation, humanitarian response, food security, defense of the rights of women and girls and fair trade with the aim of eradicating poverty in the most vulnerable communities.

She has also held the position of vice president of the Coordinator of Organizations for Development in Spain and worked at the Agua de Coco Foundation in monitoring projects, cooperation and awareness in Cambodia and Madagascar.
