Director of Communication at Women Enabled International

Marcela (Marce) Reyes is Director of Communications at Women Enabled International. In this capacity, she leads the planning and delivery of strategic communications and public relations initiatives to convey WEI’s mission, activities, and impact to internal and external stakeholders. She works closely with the Executive Director and other senior leadership to design communications strategies that support WEI in its efforts to advance human rights and justice at the intersection of gender and disability.

Her experience spans different industries, including media outlets, innovation start-ups, international cultural projects, local government, non-profits, and higher-education institutions. For over 16 years she has helped organizations think strategically about their communications and content efforts, while centering justice, equity, diversity and inclusion.
