As a Leadership Coordinator, Aleena works with IDEO.org’s CEO and managing directors in the NY studio to create balance, structure, and clarity in the chaos of everyday life. Her core responsibilities include organizing and coordinating calendars, travel, events, and experiences. Acting as somewhat of an air traffic control system for IDEO.org, Aleena helps keep our leadership team connected, organized, informed, and focused with the tools, systems, and behaviors that streamline processes and workloads.
Prior to joining IDEO.org, Aleena interned at Global Health Corps, a leadership development incubator dedicated to fostering the next generation of health leaders. As the Special Events & Projects and Growth & Change Intern, she focused on internal event planning, leadership support, and business development.
Aleena holds a BS in Global Public Health and Biology from New York University. While there, she spent time researching maternal embryonic gene development in Drosophila melanogaster and tobacco cessation trends in the tristate area—that's before finding her footing in social impact.
