Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

I was honored to serve as Co-President of Harvard's LGBTQ@GSAS Association from July 2020-January 2022. Among other initiatives, I helped spearhead the creation of a university-wide Lavender Graduation, and organized a series of 'Out in Academia' and 'Out in Industry' panels for graduate students. I also served on the Steering Committee of the Young Leader's Council of Fenway Health, an LGBTQ-focused healthcare center in Boston, for five years.
