Student Analyst, Fair FInance

Shaily Acharya

Why Beeck?

I’ve gotten to learn more about the Beeck Center this past semester by participating in the Discern + Digest lunch series program. The Center’s emphasis on creatively resolving society’s pressing issues uniquely impacts both the grassroots and institutional levels, which is something that I am keen to explore. The student analyst program allows students to meaningfully immerse themselves in these initiatives and start their own social impact journeys. I am beyond excited to work with the inspiring Beeck Center fellows and my peers in the student analyst program to further the work of the Center!

What issues are you most passionate about?

I’m passionate about economic and education equity, especially through the lens of gender. Institutions around the world restrict the ability of marginalized groups to reach the same levels of economic/educational success as others in society. I’m looking forward to working towards reforming these institutions domestically with the rest of the Fair Finance team.

Who inspires you?

Greta Thunberg: the way that she has been able to attract international attention to the urgency of the climate crisis at such a young age is commendable. Though she is younger than me, she definitely is a role model that I look up to!
