Majo Acosta Robayo
Senior Associate, North America
Majo is a Senior Associate on the Government Innovation team at CPI's North America office. She has a background in human centered design, city innovation, health equity, and biochemistry (artifact of a 3 year pre-med track).
During Majo's time at CPI, she has been a part of several programs across the government innovation and climate action portfolios. She was a curriculum designer and workshop facilitator for CPI's inaugural Fail Forward program, which focused on helping county governments across the US develop cultures of innovation that embrace responsible experimentation and continuous learning. She was also the chief storyteller and supporting consultant for 7 cities across the world as they used Bloomberg Philanthropies’ “Path to Innovation” to design creative solutions for pressing urban challenges like equitable flood preparedness in coastal cities and loss of community connectedness in growing urban centers. Currently, Majo is helping to design and implement a systems innovation program that supports a large US county's transit department as they transition to a net zero emissions fleet.
Majo graduated from Harvard with a B.A. in Sociology and a minor in Global Health and Health Policy. When she’s not working on CPI projects, Majo is usually playing pickleball, planning her next trip, or listening to podcasts as she walks through the bustling streets of Washington, DC.
