Ryan Eakin, NYC Junior Board
Current Employer & Position Title: Twitter; Technical Recruiter, Cortex
Ryan Eakin is originally from the mid-Atlantic and having spent his formative years in the immediate orbit of Washington, D.C. became deeply engaged in political activities from a young age. A firm belief in social justice and equality led him to study political science and international relations to better understand how to assist his fellow humans, locally and abroad. Now living in Manhattan, he works in human resources in the tech space, first at Google and now at Twitter, where he supports these core beliefs by helping to drive global talent programs and ensuring fairness and equality of access to opportunities. In his free time he enjoys long runs in the park, weekends hiking upstate and reading French and Persian philosophy.
