Marina Poudret is an Associate with Synergos Consulting Services, our social impact advisory practice guiding families, foundations and corporations on philanthropic strategy, corporate social responsibility, and partnership development.
Marina has worn many hats in the international relations world. She has served as a researcher and analyst in policy, international security, and international development, but ultimately found that her passion lies in community-centric work that promotes mutual understanding and collaboration. Marina was an intern with Synergos in 2017 and a Research Assistant at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies in 2018. Prior to rejoining Synergos, she worked with government stakeholders in the Africa, Latin America, and Pacific regions to strengthen the implementation of UN Security Council resolutions for global peace and security. With a passion for the arts, Marina also volunteers with arts nonprofits that provide vulnerable populations a platform to express and build community. Marina graduated from Fordham University with a BA in International Studies with a focus on cross-cultural communication and development.
