Joaquín Walker Martínez
I am Joaquín, father of Salvador and husband of Camila, from Santiago de Chile. I am a citizen engaged with politics, significantly interested in educational and labour issues, and a lawyer by profession. I worked in a Think Tank advising Congress members in legislative matters as well as contributing in the political education of several young and trade union leaders. My last job was in an educational NGO, which aims are to enhance social recognition of the teaching profession, to attract high-performing students into teaching career programmes and to improve teachers' working conditions. I also was President of the students' union of Universidad Católica de Chile in 2010, which had an important role promoting a major educational reform in my country.
