Chair of The Harvard Crimson Graduate Council, former CEO of The Trevor Project
Amit R. Paley '04 is the Chair of The Harvard Crimson's Graduate Council and was President of the 130th Guard.
He is the former CEO of The Trevor Project, the world's largest suicide prevention and mental health organization for LGBTQ young people. Under his leadership, The Trevor Project dramatically expanded the number of LGBTQ young people served, launched a global expansion, and developed innovative technology tools leveraging AI and machine learning that were recognized as one of TIME magazine's top 100 inventions of the year. The organization also transformed its TrevorSpace platform into the largest safe-space social networking site for LGBTQ youth, created a leading-edge research department, and operated the largest grassroots campaign in the world to end conversion therapy.
Prior to his work at The Trevor Project, Amit was an Associate Partner at the global consulting firm McKinsey & Company, where his clients included Fortune 500 companies, governments, and non-profit organizations. Amit served as a leader in the firm's digital, health care, and non-profit practices as well as a leader of its LGBTQ group, where he oversaw McKinsey's efforts on inclusion for transgender and nonbinary people. Before joining McKinsey, Amit worked at The Washington Post as a foreign correspondent based in Iraq, where his work was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, and a financial investigative journalist.
Why am I supporting The Crimson's 150th anniversary campaign?
Because I believe in the importance of a free and independent press and a thriving financial aid program that ensures The Crimson represents the lived experiences of the broader community and increases diversity in the field of journalism.
