Sandhya Kripalani is the Chief of Staff at #cut50. She grew up in Mill Valley, CA, and earned her B.A. at UC Berkeley with a degree in political science, working in corporate and securities litigation at Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe, LLP before continuing her education, earning her J.D. from Golden Gate University School of Law, with honors and a focus in intellectual property law.
Since then, Sandhya has worked in litigation and at various tech companies and start-ups in their corporate legal departments. Given the state of US politics, she wanted to shift her path to an area where she could have a bigger impact on society, and where genuine potential for progress and consensus existed.
In late 2016, Sandhya came to #cut50 to organize and manage #cut50’s first National Day of Empathy. After a massively successful campaign, Sandhya was brought on to continue working on the annual Day of Empathy events, manage the Empathy Network partnerships, and as the Chief of Staff for #cut50.
