Lady of the iLab: Rebecca Scharfstein

Rebecca Scharfstein

As a Boston native, I’m a lover of seasons, pumpkin-based dishes, and Head of the Charles Regatta. In addition to being a proud Bostonian, I enjoy reading, spinning, and traveling. While I’m not enjoying all that Boston has to offer, I run a social venture called Pasand that empowers young women in India to make choices for their own health and dignity by improving access to top-quality health education. Prior to running Pasand full-time, I was an economic consultant at Analysis Group. In addition to my professional experiences, I’m passionate about my serving my community and sit on the Board of Trustees of The Rashi School, an independent Jewish school in the Greater Boston Area. I graduated from Princeton with a degree in Public and International Affairs from the Woodrow Wilson School and will be heading to Harvard Business School in the fall.
