Emily Harden was a Human Rights Intern at PAN from June of 2013 until May of 2014. As an MA student studying Human Rights Education at the University of San Francisco, Emily came to PAN with a strong interest in both corporate accountability and the intersection of human rights and environmental rights. While at PAN, she researched points of leverage to hold agrichemical corporations accountable for human rights violations in the United States. In addition, Emily worked with colleagues at PAN and Dr. Thomas Kerns of the Environment and Human Rights Advisory in Yachats, Oregon to develop a Human Rights Impact Assessment (HRIA/P) that would raise public awareness of the relationship between pesticide exposure and human rights.
Today, Emily works full-time as an IRB Coordinator at the Office for the Protection of Human Subjects at UC Berkeley.
