For more information, please email events@acgusa.org.


Isabel Cademartori was elected to the German Parliament in 2021, where she represents the City of Mannheim. Ms. Cademartori is the only member of parliament with Hispanic heritage, and she serves on the Committee on Housing, Urban Development, Building, and Local Government, as well as the Committee on Transport. She is also a deputy member of the Committee on Health. Ms. Cademartori has also been a member of the Mannheim City Council since 2019.

Prior to her rise in electoral politics, she studied Business and Economics Education at the University of Mannheim, earning her master’s degree in 2014. Born in Brandenburg to a German mother and a Chilean father who immigrated to East Germany as a political refugee, Ms. Cademartori’s biography is one of the more unusual among her colleagues in the Bundestag. Her grandfather, Jose Cademartori, was the Minister of Economics in Salvador Allende’s government and was forced to flee Chile after Pinochet’s military putsch. She studied abroad in Chile and South Africa.
