Boundary Breaker ElsaMarie D'Silva

  • Asian American Cultural Center 295 Crown St. New Haven, CT (map)

Join us for an intimate conversation with ElsaMarie D'Silva, the founder and CEO of Red Dot Foundation, a platform that gathers personal stories of sexual harassment and abuse in public spaces to track trends at a local level. She’ll share her own leadership journey and how she’s overcome challenges, and will offer advice to students interested in innovation and social change.

This event is produced in partnership with the Asian American Cultural Center (AACC) and the Asian Network @ Yale (ANY) and is part of the Global Innovation Series, an exciting new partnership between Yale’s Maurice R. Greenberg World Fellows Program and the Tsai Center for Innovative Thinking at Yale (Tsai CITY), established by 2017 World Fellow and Tsai CITY Innovator in Residence Baljeet Sandhu. As part of the Knowledge Equity Initiative, the series involves a set of events and discussions hosted around Yale’s campus to explore and celebrate the innovative work of groundbreaking global changemakers across industries, geographies, and cultures. Each event is built in partnership with other centers across the university to connect World Fellows with the community and to encourage multidisciplinary debate and knowledge exchange.
