Adriana Gallardo is an engagement reporter at ProPublica, where she works to cultivate communities to inform our coverage. Last year, she reported for the “Lost Mothers” series, which illuminated a national disgrace: The U.S. has the worst rate of maternal deaths in the developed world, and up to 60 percent of those deaths are preventable. This series won the 2018 Goldsmith Prize for investigative reporting, received a George Polk Award, a Peabody and was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for explanatory reporting.

Gallardo has long specialized in community journalism. Prior to ProPublica, she oversaw a national reporting series at 15 public media stations. In 2014, she travelled the country with the StoryCorps mobile booth collecting over 400 stories archived at the Library of Congress. In her hometown Chicago, she spent over a decade working as a media educator, journalist and radio producer.
