Sujatha Jesudason, Professor of Professional Practice in Management, has worked as an activist, organizer and scholar for over 25 years in a range of social justice movements. She is a leading voice on new practices in movement building, gender justice, and racial belonging. In her work, she focuses on forging unlikely collaborations and looking past forced simplifications at the intersection of issues too often considered separately. Sujatha has worked skillfully with a wide and diverse range of leaders, community members, activists, scholars, researchers, and academics, listening for patterns in order to prepare for the challenges around the corner and into the future. Before The New School, Sujatha was the Executive Director of CoreAlign, a reproductive justice organization teaching innovation for social change to frontline activists, which she founded in 2012. With a focus on race and power, Sujatha has trained organizers to think and act innovatively, and generate creative solutions to complex social problems. She holds a doctorate in Sociology from the University of California, Berkeley and an undergraduate degree in Economics and Latin American Studies from the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
