Camila Novo-Viaño

Consultant

Camila joined FSG with experience in consulting, public policy research, and philanthropy. Since joining FSG, Camila has supported a range of clients, from small place-based nonprofits to some of the largest philanthropic foundations and corporate givers in the United States. On her teams, she supports research, analysis, and insight generation, and enjoys collaborating closely with clients. Camila is especially passionate about addressing inequities in economic mobility and education.

Camila’s past projects include supporting a direct service nonprofit in scaling its work to provide more first-generation students with post-secondary education access and completion services. She has also worked with several large corporations, in different sectors, to develop strategies that leverage their assets and expertise to address social problems. Her work with corporations has included projects in Latin America with Spanish speaking clients. Camila has recently contributed to research on reproductive health, making the business case for employee access to affordable reproductive health care.

Before FSG

As an undergraduate, Camila’s academic pursuits were centered on human rights, public policy, and ethics. Her independent policy paper recommending strategies for the United States’ response to Chinese human rights abuses was presented to the Council on Foreign Relations and the White House China advisor to the National Security Council in early 2017. The capstone of Camila’s academic work was her senior thesis in which she evaluated the International Commission Against Impunity in Guatemala as a model for strengthening rule of law.

Camila is passionate about civic engagement. In 2016 she founded Princeton Advocates for Justice, a coalition of campus advocacy groups with the mission of organizing and encouraging meaningful civic engagement on campus. In 2017, the organization was awarded the Alberto Santos-Dumont Prize for Innovation for its visibility and wide-reaching impact. As an undergraduate, she spent a summer with Resource Foundation where she oversaw and translated impact reports for clients funding projects at the local level in Latin America. Camila also spent a summer as an intern with FSG where she helped facilitate the visioning process for a strategy project with the San Antonio Area Foundation.
