Diana Chavez

Born in the Bay Area, Diana has served as a social justice advocate for over 7 years. She began working in community organizing as an AmeriCorps member working with youth in low-income neighborhoods of Boston. Back in San Francisco, she became a social justice grantmaker and project manager at Tides, a nonprofit that provides infrastructure and grantmaking services to more than 200 social justice organizations and more than 400 philanthropists and institutions across the globe. Diana recently returned from a year in Nicaragua advocating for women’s reproductive rights while partnering with Central American Women’s Fund (Fondo Centroamericano de Mujeres), and is very excited to join the Board of Third Wave to continue this focus at home. She brings a desire to strengthen underserved communities and to support the fields of health and justice for women and girls.
