Akriti Bhargava

Akriti (pronounced like Socrates without the s’s, and with a flat ‘th’ like in plethora) (she/her) is easily excited by conversations about local and global decarbonization and grid electrification, and also climate (and socio-economic) justice. Born in the US, grown in India, re-acclimated to American ‘culture’ in Vermont, hit her stride in Oakland, CA, she now finds herself living in Portland: the 9th city she’s moved to in her lifetime.

Akriti is our SBA VP for Equity & Inclusion, and brings with her a passion for equitable justice; experience in advocacy, and political and union organizing; and tools for institutional shifts towards inclusion and belonging. She’s excited to engage the student body to identify and implement lasting solutions and structures of equity.
