Aditi Sinha is the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Director for Teach For America.

The daughter of Indian immigrants, Aditi’s path was laid out for her from an early age—go to medical school and become a doctor. However, the more she learned about the racial inequities in this country—the same country her family moved to because it was “the land of opportunity”—she realized she couldn’t sit by and do nothing.

After graduating from Case Western Reserve University with a B.A. In Biology and Spanish and a minor in Chemistry, her intentional journey for equity began as a high school Biology teacher in East Dallas at a charter school serving predominantly Latino students.

Aditi worked at Teach For India as a teacher coach in Mumbai for three years where she experienced and began to better understand how systemic racism manifests on a global scale. Aditi now works as the Director, Diversity and Leadership at Teach For America Dallas-Fort Worth.
