Yamilett K. Carrillo Guerrero, Ph.D., Director, Nonprofit Innovation and Performance
As Director of Nonprofit Innovation and Performance, Dr. Carrillo brings over 20 years of experience in creating and strengthening civil organizations in Northern Mexico. She has a B.A. in Economics and a Ph.D. in Renewable Natural Resources with an emphasis in Soil, Water and Environmental Sciences. Her extensive work in environmental conservation coupled with her background in economics guided her natural evolution into becoming a social entrepreneur: She has created and contributed to the creation of several environmental organizations, as well as the development of new programs in well-established organizations.

Dr. Carrillo believes that a strong and engaging civil society is needed to create multiple pathways for sustainability, equity, and well-being of every community. Knowing that between 30-50% of civil organizations fail or stall between the 5th-10th year milestone, she is deeply interested in building the resiliency of civil organizations. Her work is twofold: help build up the capacities and strengths of nonprofits and define the metrics for their progress in their path towards becoming the sustainable, resilient organizations that our communities need. With this new position, ICF is investing in building stronger, empowered civil organizations as the main weavers of the safety net of local communities in Mexico and Latin America.

During her free time, Dr. Carrillo loves exploring nature, camping at Natural Parks, and rediscovering the Baja Peninsula.
