Over the last several decades, Sujatha Jesudason has been a leader in social change movements.
She served as founder and executive director of CoreAlign, a reproductive justice organization that teaches innovation for social change to frontline activists, did community organizing in Milwaukee, taught violence prevention in the South Asian American community, and served as a policy advocate on human genetics.
Recently, Jesudason, who is now Professor of Professional Practice in Management at the Milano School, was named one of “10 Women Over 50 Who Prove It’s Never Too Late to Change the World.”
“At this age, I’m trying new things — what better time to risk it all?” Jesudason said in an interview with the publication, which called her “The Social Reformer.” “I just moved to New York City for the first time in my life. I’m the most impactful I’ve ever been in my work, and I’m also transitioning into the role of mentor. More of my energies are going into supporting other women, and in this political moment, that is powerful. We need to go all out.”
