Diana Pando works with organizations to help them tell their stories about the amazing work they are doing in their communities. She believes stories have the power to move people to action and it’s given her an opportunity to do communications work in the arts, housing, early childhood development, and maternal health. For more than a decade, she has been working with organizations to spotlight the people being impacted by their programs or services. Her work shows up in social media, annual reports, press releases, videos, funding proposals, and websites. She has also secured media coverage for organizations in the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times, ABC-7, CBS-2, Hoy Newspaper, La Raza Newspaper, WTTW-11, NBC-5, WGN-9, Univision, Telemundo, and more.
Ms. Pando is co-founder of the Chicago Latino Writers Initiative, and former co-host of Proyecto Latina, a radio show in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood.
“Maternal health matters to me because there are women who do not have support during or after pregnancy. It’s during these times that women need the most help to heal and thrive with their children.”
