Prithi Chandra is the Senior Associate Director of Corporate and Foundation Relations at the Penn Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. Through her role at the Museum, she works to bring programs to life by uniting philanthropy with the Museum’s educational, cultural, and artistic vision. As a lifelong Philadelphian, she also believes in the power of activating the gardens and parks within the city as magical spaces of learning, community, peace, and joy that are accessible to everyone.
Although she is new to the Penn Museum, she has seen the impact of the Firesoul community on the work done there through the beautiful “making” workshops brought to life by Nature Sacred, and the heartfelt musings and gratitude shared in the journals tucked under our courtyard benches. In her free time, Prithi loves to cook with her partner, play with her dog, go on long hikes, sit around cozy fires, and watch scary movies.
