Juan Clavijo , MPA (he/él)


Juan joined ORS Impact in 2018 and is excited to contribute to the social sector through his passion for data-driven learning that improves social outcomes. In his work, he seeks to clearly understand and meet client needs in a precise, innovative, and professional manner, in order to help them accomplish their mission efficiently and effectively.

Juan recently moved back to the Pacific Northwest after living and working in Latin America, bringing international experience in the political and social sectors. In Colombia - his home country - Juan worked as a consultant, focusing on political consulting and social policy monitoring and evaluation for public and private sector clients, including USAID and Univision Network. Before moving to Colombia, Juan worked for a Canadian non-profit implementing a program to improve access to higher education for indigenous youth in rural areas around Cuzco, Peru. Juan holds an MPA degree from the Evans School of Public Affairs at the University of Washington, and a BA in Political Science and International Studies from the same university.

Juan is a proud father and husband, who tries to spend as much time as possible with his family. He enjoys playing soccer and running, finds inspiration in talking about politics and social issues with others, and tries to remain connected to his home country and his indigenous friends.
