A journey of commitment from the start

Alana Perez’s unwavering dedication to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) stems from inspiring narratives woven within her family and the world around her. Drawing strength from the courageous acts of her trailblazing grandmother, who defied societal norms in an era of constraints, Alana became acutely aware of the deeply ingrained gender stereotypes pervasive in society. Motivated to effect change, she embarked on a career dedicated to fostering a more inclusive world. Alana's journey at the IDB began as a consultant, where she played a pivotal role in our pursuit of EDGE certification, meticulously analyzing our progress and unwavering commitment to gender equality. Today, as a Human Resources Business Partner, Alana continues to champion DEI working alongside our esteemed team to create an environment that embraces the power of inclusivity.
