Alex Keswani

Alex Keswani is a senior in the College of Arts & Sciences majoring in political economy with a triple minor in law & society, psychology, and cinema & media studies. Keswani was initially introduced to CHIP through an event several years ago at Kelly Writer’s House — out of the many happenings on Penn’s campus on a given day, he recalled, CHIP’s event caught his interest. From that point on, and after learning more about the Center’s work, he knew he wanted to be involved. As an Applied Research and Marketing Assistant, much of Keswani’s work to date has involved conducting due diligence research on exemplary organizations in the social impact sector, including many of those highlighted in the 2024 High Impact Giving Toolkit. Drawing on both primary and secondary sources, he uses CHIP’s criteria as a guiding framework for evaluating the organizations’ impact. And while Keswani is not yet sure where his career will take him, he knows his work will be impact-oriented and mission-driven.
