Leveraging Data for Social Impact
As a Business Analyst, Yon Jimenez-Macuso leverages data to increase REDF’s efficiency, effectiveness, and impact as well as the impact of the social enterprise organizations we partner with to transform lives. Yon also designs and implements internal data solutions that help REDF staff collaborate and collectively problem-solve.
Yon has spent over a decade in the social sector fighting injustices and promoting economic security for individuals who face systemic barriers to employment and opportunity. Most recently he worked at Renaissance Entrepreneurship Center, an organization that provides access to business education in low-income communities and communities of color. Inspired by REDF’s model of supporting businesses with a social purpose and building a more equitable workforce, Yon joined the team eager to contribute to REDF’s mission and to work at an organization that shares his values.
Yon earned his Master’s Degree in Business Administration and Management from the University of the Basque Country in Spain, and a Social Sector Leadership certificate from UC Berkeley and Philanthropy University. Yon loves to explore new destinations, learn about different cultures, and sample local cuisine. Closer to home, you can find Yon spending time outdoors with his partner and friends, eating great food or binge-watching the latest sci-fi series.
