Aleena Ismail

Aleena Ismail is a recent alumna of Cornell University and an analyst at PJT Partners in the shareholder advisory group where she helps advise clients on ESG strategy, activism defense, and strategic investor relations. She is a Chicago native, the eldest daughter of two resilient immigrants, and a proud South Asian Muslim woman.

Aleena enjoys personal narrative and poetry writing; writing has taught her to be more observant and reflective, create new worlds with her imagination, and turn complex emotions into words to be proud of. She believes that all young people, but especially those from marginalized backgrounds, deserve the resources to express themselves and have their voices amplified.
