Certificate Training Series Inaugural Cohort
Andrea Calderon serves as a Senior Advisor, Healthy Communities at Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg Center for Government Excellence (GovEx), brining over a decade’s worth of experience in municipal systems. Andrea works to ensure that equity is at the root of data practice and supports municipalities from talking about equity to integrating it into its daily operations. Formerly the Race and Equity Data Analyst in the City of Albuquerque’s Office of Equity and Inclusion, Andrea leveraged geospatial data insights to inform interventions that would better serve communities disproportionately impacted by inequities and that have historically faced underinvestment.
Prior to working at the City of Albuquerque, Andrea focused on sustainability education and systems change as Baltimore City’s Youth Sustainability Coordinator at the Baltimore Office of Sustainability (City of Baltimore Planning Department). She has worked at Baltimore City Schools central offices, and in an array of schools and nonprofits. Andrea earned her Master’s in Community and Regional Planning at the University of New Mexico with a focus on Community Development and Indigenous Planning and earned her Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology at the University of Maryland, College Park. Andrea is a proud first-generation immigrant from Cochabamba, Bolivia.
