Sophie Broach graduated cum laude from Yale University with a B.A. in history in 2013. Her senior essay focused on the unintended consequences of a U.S. government funded opium eradication campaign in Burma in the 1980s. After graduating, she taught English at a university in Thailand and then joined the Lao office of a global health NGO. In Laos, she co-managed a child nutrition project, supported a program to distribute long-acting, reversible contraceptives, and helped oversee monitoring and evaluation activities. Most recently, she worked at Verité, a non-profit dedicated to promoting fair labor practices. There she managed a socially responsible investment program and prepared reports documenting labor abuses among various populations of workers. Sophie hopes her studies at Yale will help her continue to work towards ensuring that vulnerable workers and communities connected to global supply chains bear fewer of the burdens of globalization.
