Deepti Panjabi is a leader in the public sector. She believes creativity and design thinking are powerful tools to identify new solutions to old problems. Outside of work, you can find her trying to perfect her pirouette. Deepti also enjoys taking photos to capture the beauty of life. Her passion for social impact coupled with her enthusiasm to create are two (of many) reasons she's excited to be a fellow.

2018 FELLOW PROJECT
THROUGH THIS LENS
Our stories connect us, inspire others, and have the power to transform.
Through this Lens unites Charlotteans—who also identify as immigrants—through the power of their stories. This project will connect and celebrate the immigrant experience. With artistic dialogue, the Through this Lens community will offer our larger community a look through the many lenses of the immigrant experience. These lenses look beyond a single story. They capture belonging, pride, and our shared humanity.
