Born in September 11, 1983 in Monterrey, Mexico, Bárbara Arredondo is a noted cultural curator and journalist in peacebuilding. Her work has taken her to dozens of countries and has resulted in profiles of a number of her generation’s most promising peace-builders. Though young in years, she managed to gather 6,000 peacemakers in her hometown of Monterrey, Mexico for a weekend of intensive conferences and workshops with notables ranging from the Dalai Lama to Iraqi-born women's activist Zainab Salbi. Bárbara worked as content director for the Second & Third Worldwide Meeting on Human Values (EMV2011.org) and as ED tech project manager for EducarUno and Kiran Bir Sethi. She has advised diverse projects and events such as the Lincoln Center Institute’s Imagination Summit and the Newark Peace and Education Summit.
Early this year, she launched IListen - a design thinking consulting agency that creates and curates experiences that redefine human potential. Their first project is a 5-month series called i Am Here Series – a platform featuring conferences and workshops where women will be able to recognize their own potential to craft positive and meaningful change in their communities. Barbara enjoys practicing yoga, hiking, and most of all discovering new music. i Am Here Series is an ongoing journey to discover who we are and what we camehere to do. Our first edition: Discover the she in us is a 5-month series featuring 10 noteworthy female speakers and surprise guests who will address 350 women in Monterrey, Mexico. We aim to serve as a platform where our attendees will be able to recognize their own potential to craft positive and meaningful change in their community.
