Natrina Gandana

Special Projects Director

Natrina Gandana joins FII as Special Projects Director, assisting the leadership team with strategy, development, and research. She has spent her career working directly with populations experiencing incarceration. As the Director of Programs at The Last Mile, the first program in the U.S. to provide in-prison software engineering training, Natrina was instrumental in its growth from 1 classroom to 11, staff from herself to 25, and students served from 25 to over 400. While at The Last Mile, she also developed a reentry apprenticeship pipeline in partnership with Slack called “Next Chapter”, which enables formerly incarcerated individuals to thrive in tech employment. Natrina is experienced in prison education and community development, with deep knowledge of prison reform. She has a B.A. in Political Science from UC Berkeley and continues to serve as a member of The Last Mile’s Advisory Board.
