A leader in international development and humanitarian response, Sofia Sprechmann brings over 25 years of experience of working at CARE. She spearheaded CARE’s first program strategy and was integral to placing gender equality at the very heart of CARE’s worldwide work. In CARE’s 75th year history, her leadership is pivotal to CARE’s 2030 Vision in contribution to Sustainable Development Goals.
First joining CARE in 1994, Ms. Sprechmann has served in several positions, providing support to programs in Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America. With extensive experience in program design and implementation; impact measurement and evaluation; and advocacy, she is dedicated to transforming power relations inside and outside of the organization. Her unshakable commitment to gender equality is drawn from many years of working alongside some of the worlds most marginalised women; from domestic workers, women working in the garment sector and victims of gender-based violence.
