Sofia Sunaga

Sofia is responsible for building the relational, cultural, systemic, and technological infrastructure upon which the Intergen Family Initiative stands. She does so by merging her extensive and ongoing experiential knowledge and study of the family wealth ecosystem with her prior 15-year work in international development and grass-roots movements.

She has been the core strategic and operational force behind the production of the Intergen Program Track presented at the Family Office Association and delivered in 7 different cities, engaging over 360 individuals in 2019. Sofia is now developing the Intergen Collaborative (or Co-Lab) as a way to house ongoing projects from the shared passions and resources of Intergen Track attendees.

Sofia is also founding Co-Chair of the Purpose Lab within NEXUS, a global movement to bridge communities of wealth and social entrepreneurship. She has been a member of the network since 2014 and has spoken in both its national and global summits. In addition, she has hosted workshops, panels, delegations, and online community activities that included engagement and cooperation with NCFP, Fetzer, Synergos, and Templeton.

Prior to embarking on her current endeavors, Sofia worked at the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) in Washington, D.C. She holds a B.A. in Social Communications from the University of São Paulo, Brazil, and an interdisciplinary M.A. from Georgetown University in Communication, Culture, and Technology. Among her many interests, she practices meditation, yoga, singing, and hiking. Sofia is fluent in English, Portuguese, and Spanish, and is an eternal student of Japanese.
