Carcedo has extensive knowledge and experience in the acquisition and management of government grants and contracts, having raised $300 million from these sources prior to her career in philanthropy. In response to her appointment to the IC² board, Carcedo said,

 “I think the problems that are before us in almost every sector of the economy require new approaches, new visioning, and opportunities to be creative and think outside the box. IC² is such an organization and I’m excited to be a part of it.”

With more than 25 years of experience in the health and human services industry, Carcedo is a catalyst for change who fosters a work culture of respect, trust, and esprit de corps. She is known for creating service delivery models that integrate efforts and streamline cooperation across departments, ultimately producing efficiencies that improve an organization’s bottom line.

The IC² Institute is thrilled to have Jo Carcedo serve on our advisory board. IC² Institute Director Craig Watkins said,

“As we continue to chart a new course for IC², we are fortunate to have Jo Carcedo join our board.  Jo’s depth of experience in health and human services, combined with her wisdom, eloquence and visionary approach, makes Jo the perfect addition.  Jo understands the risks and opportunities of technologies like artificial intelligence and the role they will play in the future of health and well-being.  She will sharpen our perspective as we expand our portfolio in the Health AI space. I’m grateful for the contributions she has already made to IC² , and look forward to the future with her as a board member.”

Carcedo is published in The Foundation Review, blogged for Health Affairs, and has been featured in the Annual Report of the Meadows Mental Health Policy Institute (2018). She has been a speaker at various conferences including the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, Philanthropy Southwest, PEAK Grantmaking, Fund for Shared Insight, Texas Primary Care Consortium, the IC² Institute and the LBJ School.
