Angela Gomez joins Redstone as an analyst after graduating from Stanford University with a BAH in Sociology and a BA in Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity with a focus on Politics, Policy, and Equity. At Stanford, Angela was involved with the High School Support Initiative providing individual tutoring to secondary school students within the Bay Area, Hermanas de Stanford, a Latina organization promoting equity for women-identifying Latinx students as the Social Community Chair, and the Leland Scholars Program as a preceptor supporting the transition from high school to college for fellow first-generation students at Stanford.
Angela wrote her senior honors thesis structurally analyzing youth of color’s quarantine activism and organizing in the Salinas Valley in partnership with Salinas community organizations. Later, she applied those findings to support local youth organizations’ applications for funding renewals with Building Healthy Communities. As a social sector analyst, Angela believes solutions generated in collaboration with stakeholders enables better use of collective resources and prevents silos within the project work and across stakeholder groups.
Born and raised in the rural agricultural region of the California Salinas Valley, she enjoys reading, playing tennis, crocheting, and spending time with friends and family.
