The 2022 Segal Summer Internship page has full details on each internship, our partners, and their great work together  this summer to promote social justice.

Segal Fellow Spotlight: Anita Yip

"The Segal Program grounds me in my commitment to social justice."

2012 AmeriCorps Alums Segal Fellow Anita Yip is a purpose-driven technologist who manages people and projects for social impact…. In 2011, Anita co-founded the Jasmine Asian Women Giving Circle. She is a proud Big Sister and an avid lion and dragon dance performer of many years. She won MIT/HUBweek's 2018 policy hackathon, then leveraging that to help found Untapped Potential Boston. While part of SPARK Boston, she organized Chief Chats and a virtual town hall, created SPARK's first run out the vote event, and launched Rooted In Boston in 2021 that put $1600 back into BIPOC businesses during the pandemic and raised visibility of BIPOC and Asian Americans in civic engagement and programming.

Currently, Anita works on technology that matters and gives back through volunteering with Code for Boston. Originally from Boston, Anita holds a BA in environmental studies and media arts and sciences from Wellesley College and a MS in corporate and organizational communication from Northeastern University. She is also the first in her family to graduate from college. 

Anita shared, “The Segal Program grounds me in my commitment to social justice. Because of Segal, I've had opportunities to broaden and be challenged on my understanding of social justice history, from hearing firsthand accounts from members of the Little Rock Nine to recontextualising effaced perspectives like the tokenization of Booker T Washington. The Segal Program helps develop virtues needed for helping people in our community and the world at large with integrity and accountability. It not only grounds me in my commitment to social justice but also reminds me to reflect on the legacy I'd like to leave for future generations of leaders.”
