Siri holds a B.A. in Sociology, Anthropology, and Studio Art from St. Olaf College. As part of her studies, Siri spent a semester in Tanzania where her research on cross-gender interactions allowed her to explore the perceived inequalities between men and women and the social constructs that help create them. After she graduated, Siri focused on promoting equal opportunity for oppressed populations, with a specific emphasis on education. She comes to the Global Fund for Women most recently from the San Francisco Child Abuse Prevention Center and Up on Top, a tuition-free education-focused after school program in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood. Siri also volunteers weekly with Little Brothers Friends of the Elderly.
