Luisa Covaria is the strategy and design director at OpenIDEO—IDEO’s open innovation portfolio. An interaction designer by training and an activist at heart, her passion lies in creating the conditions for radical collaboration, movement building, and social change. Covaria works with private and public sector partners to bridge the gap between innovation and philanthropy. Her focus spans a broad range of social issues, from securing access to education in the global south to women’s safety through a lens of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Most recently, Covaria worked with a family foundation and impact investment fund to develop a program that aims to maximize every child's potential during their first three years of life.
