Alexis Medina


Alexis has supported the design of multiple complex grant-making initiatives at Bennett Midland, including What Works Cities—a national initiative from Bloomberg Philanthropies to help 100 mid-sized American cities accelerate their use of data and evidence to engage citizens and improve people’s lives. She also led our work to help launch the Center for Government Excellence at Johns Hopkins University. Additionally, Alexis contributed to the development of the New York City Digital Playbook, which leveraged human-centered design techniques to establish a vision for how the City’s digital strategy will increase equity and help all New Yorkers participate in the political, civic, and cultural life of the city.

Prior to joining Bennett Midland, Alexis worked on strategic planning projects for the New York City Economic Development Corporation. Alexis holds a BA with honors in Social Studies from Harvard.
