Carla Fernandez

Carla Fernandez co-founded The Dinner Party with Lennon Flowers in the years following the death of her father, Jose Fernandez, to brain cancer. She found that life after loss - especially for someone in their early twenties - lacked the kind of peer support she was hungry for - so invited a group of soon-to-be-friends who'd all experienced loss to a potluck on her Los Angeles back porch. When not working on TDP, Carla is the Community Lead at enso - a creative agency focused on social impact projects with brands including Google, Khan Academy, Barbie, and The Nature Conservancy. Carla is a Reynold's Scholar at NYU's Gallatin School of Individualized Study, where she concentrated in Social Entrepreneurship, and a Senior Fellow at USC's Annenberg Innovation Lab.
