Please welcome the four newly-elected members of the H4A Board of Directors! They will serve a 2-year term from January 2024 until December 2025. The four join current Board Members Stanley Fang (MBA ‘12), Om Lala (AB ‘06, MD ‘12, MBA ‘12), Athena Lao (AB ‘12), and Darshak Sanghavi (AB ‘92). 



Eva is passionate about harnessing the power of volunteers to build strong communities. Most recently, she was Executive Director of Full Circle Fund, a network of professionals in the San Francisco Bay Area who leverage their time, skills and connections to accelerate nonprofits and positive change in our communities. She also co-chaired an organization born out of the pandemic with more than 500 volunteers across the Bay Area who connected to provide PPE to protect the medically underserved. 

Driven by her belief that education changes lives, she serves on the boards of Head-Royce School (a K-12 independent school), and Education for Change (EFC), Oakland’s largest public charter network. EFC is focused on helping its 3,000 students challenge predictable patterns of performance and access to opportunity in this country with the academic competencies, personal agency and integrated identity necessary to be prepared for a meaningful and productive life.

Eva graduated from Harvard College in 1989 with a degree in History of Science. She worked at Procter and Gamble in brand management and at Microsoft for over 10 years in various capacities including Director of Market Planning, Consumer Division and Group Marketing manager, Asia region.

I believe in solidarity, and I am a lifetime member of every Harvard race-based alumni association, including H4A, the Harvard Black Alumni Society (HBAS), the Harvard Latino Alumni Alliance (HLAA), and the Native American Alumni of Harvard University (NAAHU). I graduated from the Harvard Kennedy School (HKS) in 1998 with a master’s in public policy. My commitment to Harvard has included serving on the HKS Alumni Executive Board and as Digital Chapter Chair and board member of H4A. I have volunteered with Harvard Alumni for Black Advancement and Coalition for a Diverse Harvard. I have led 50+ Harvard Diversity Discussions online on race that have been supported by numerous institutional co-hosts and co-organized with hundreds of individuals. Since 2017, I have been affiliated with the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University, part of Harvard Law School, where I am the Founding Director of the Race+Tech+Media Working Group. As a public scholar, I have been quoted on identity and technology by NPR, CNN, Bustle, Colorlines, Fox News, Forbes, Mashable, Reader’s Digest, U.S. News & World Report, The Washington Post, and more. I am a racial justice activist with diverse board experiences and a proven track record for making a positive difference, and I hope you will vote for me, so that I may bring an underrepresented voice as a Thai Alabamian to the board of H4A.
