HERlead Fellow

Katalina Connors Headshot

Katalina discovered her passions for the environment and social justice early on in her life. It’s her life’s work to continue working towards a better future in both environmental and social justice. In 2015, Katalina participated as a HERlead Fellow, founding a casual social space for queer and trans youth in her community. Katalina graduated with a BA in Environmental and Urban Studies and minor in Human Rights from the University of Chicago in 2020, with her senior thesis proposing an alternative design concept for the end-of-life phase of buildings and infrastructure where they could be designed to decay in a way that would help invigorate the surrounding ecosystems.
