Board Secretary 

Katrina Cabanban is a Vice President at Citi Community Development. Katrina uses pronouns she/her/hers. In her current role as a regulatory analyst, she supports Citi with its commitment to build economic empowerment for low- and moderate-income individuals and communities through its Community Reinvestment Act program. In addition to GELC, Katrina serves as a Programming Committee member of the US National Committee for U.N. Women, Metro NY Chapter and as a Participatory Review Committee member in the inaugural cycle for the NYC Fund for Girls and Young Women of Color. She is also a member of several feminist professional committees including the Ms. Foundation for Women's Young Professional Advisory Committee and the New York Women’s Foundation's Committee for the Future. Katrina worked as a paralegal in an environmental litigation and compliance law firm, but has devoted her free time to women’s grassroots organizing, activism, and direct service. She previously served as a coordinator for GABRIELA Network (a transnational Filipina feminist organization) and volunteered at the San Francisco Asian Women's Shelter. It was her passion for women's rights and social justice that drove her to the social work profession. Katrina hopes to leverage her social work lens and regulatory background to support the economic empowerment of women of color and expand her contributions internationally. Katrina is motivated by the matriarchs and strong women she has as family, friends, and mentors and is driven by the goal to increase representation of women of color in leadership, and leadership on their own terms. Katrina earned a B.A. in psychology from U.C. Berkeley and a Master's degree in social work from the Columbia School of Social Work.
