Iris Stegman is a native of Oakland, California. Iris proudly wears the title “Social Justice Warrior”. Though initially a mechanical engineering major, her summers spent canvassing for the Planned Parenthood Action Fund and the ACLU-inspired her to pursue a career in the social sector. Iris was a student at Carnegie Mellon University double majoring in Decision Science and Policy and Management. Her top priorities included dismantling the school-to-prison pipeline and mitigating the negative effects urban revitalization has on poor communities of color. She has been highly involved in her school’s chapter of College Democrats and was determined to cure the political apathy that existed within Carnegie Mellon’s tech-focused student body. Upon graduation, Iris hopes to work at a non-profit or a political consulting firm. With her Decision Science degree, she hopes to prove that big data and data analytics can and will improve the judgment and decision making within the social sector.
