Welcome to Cabot! It’s so wonderful to have the opportunity to get to know each of you and learn about your passions and challenges as you navigate your journey at Harvard. My background is as an entrepreneur, starting my career in the tech sector helping to found, launch, and run companies. Currently, I support social entrepreneurs who are in the early stages of catalyzing systems change, as a Managing Director at Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation. My current areas of focus include education, social justice, and economic inequality, and I serve on several boards of amazing organizations that I’d be happy to share more about with you! At Harvard, I’ve had the privilege of serving on the recent President’s Belonging and Inclusion Task Force along with the Sexual Assault Prevention Task Force along with other teaching and advisory roles.

My educational background includes an undergraduate degree in Economics and International Relations at Cornell and a joint MBA/MPP at Harvard Business School and Harvard Kennedy School. While Rakesh and I technically met at Cornell (I interviewed him for his first job!) we worked together for a few years and then attended graduate school together before we got married. We’re the proud parents of three children. I enjoy my very new sport of sculling on the Charles River, for which I’m grateful to the Cabotians who encouraged me, along with running, when not injured. I also appreciate any good book recommendations!

Most importantly, I love the Cabot community and want to learn about your thoughts and ideas for how we can continue to making this a great place to live and work together. I look forward to hearing from you! Email me anytime to find time to meet up: skhurana@fas.harvard.edu
