Monica Alcalde

Gill Jacot‐Guillarmod Award, 2015

GILL J-G AWARD 2 - Monica Alcalde

In recognition of her contributions over 38 years as Cultural Specialist at the US Embassy in Santiago, Chile. The programs she runs include traditional exchange programs, and long-term initiatives in justice, democracy, economics and social issues, many of which she created and sustained over decades. Focusing on legal reform, these programs helped move Chile’s inquisitorial justice system to one patterned largely on the US system. Her program alumni are everywhere in government, NGOs and civil society, innovating and reforming, inspired and encouraged by their ongoing contacts with her and the Embassy. The  Chilean Congress recognized the impact of her work in a tribute read on the floor of the Senate.
