Mia Deschamps

Program Associate, Andean Region

Mia Deschamps is a program associate in the Ford Foundation’s Andean Region office in Bogotá, Colombia. Throughout her career, Mia has been fascinated by how data can drive better decision-making in both the public and private sectors. She brings a long history of experience designing, implementing, and monitoring support programs to public institutions and civil society organizations to the Ford Foundation. She joined the foundation in 2016 as one of the inaugural staff members in Ford's new Andean Region office in Bogotá.

Prior to joining the Ford Foundation, Mia was an officer at the International Organization of Migration (IOM), senior officer for the National Democratic Institute (NDI) and senior methodologist for the Office of the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR). Mia also worked as a volunteer in Namibia with the US Peace Corps, as a program officer in the Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration at the State Department, and as research director at Moby Media Group in Afghanistan.

She earned her bachelor’s degree from the State University of New York, and a Master’s degree in public policy from Duke University. In 2017, she will work toward a certification in data visualization from the University of Washington, thanks in part to US State Department fellowship support
